Thomas Edison at the Bat
Recently I had the opportunity to write an article for Ft. Myers Magazine. I had found a little tidbit on Thomas Edison, and how much he loved baseball, to the point that as an old man, he went to spring training with the Philadelphia Athletics. He even took a little batting practice against Ty Cobb, leading to a story that made national headlines.
After I uncovered the Edison story, I knew I wanted to bring it back to life, and Ft. Myers Magazine gave me the opportunity to do that. I hope you check out the article: http://www.ftmyersmagazine.com/FtM-edit.EdisonAtTheBat.html.
