Touch Second [T-Shirt Week, Day One]

A tribute to my favorite Cub, the nervous-breakdowniest second baseman ever to steal a pennant.  (Er…was that a sentence?)

…at least, you’d better when this guy’s around.  The back says:

“THE CRAB”

Bane of umpires; Merkle tormentor. 1883-1947

And you can buy it here until I get a cease-and-desist from his estate.

Tomorrow:  The Fantastic Mr. Pipp.
