Linkage: A Great Read on Dom Brown/Wally Joyner
Posted by at 9:02 am ET Comments Off on Linkage: A Great Read on Dom Brown/Wally Joyner


Long time friend of The Fightins Dennis Deitch posted a TREMENDOUS article to the Delco Times yesterday, in which he examines the relationship that’s blossomed between Dom Brown and Wally Joyner– one that’s been strengthened by some personal ties and shared history. A sampling:

“Clearly, Brown and Joyner have bridged the generational and racial divides that playing baseball in the shadow of Stone Mountain could cause. Early in spring training, Brown said the Joyner’s arrival and the immediate click between them made him feel like “God maybe sent an angel down to me.”

Surprisingly, that angel was raised in the shadow of a memorial that so easily could have built a wall between men of different races. Instead, they bonded.”

I urge you to give it a read, you’ll surely appreciate it.
