John Henry Moss

John Henry Moss, the man who founded the Western Carolinas League in 1948 (which, in turn, became the most recent incarnation of the Sally League) has suffered a stroke. I don’t offer this for poignancy or heavy information or anything like that. It’s just that I’ve gone to more than my fair of Sally League and Appalachian League games over the years and, because that whole low level minors experience feels like it’s about a million years old, I read the article and had a hard time getting my mind around the notion that a someone who was started those league could still be around and kicking in 2009.

Godspeed to Mr. Moss.  I would love to read more about him.

But what also gets me riled up is the top story of the day in that newspaper – the “sub place” is closing!  What a sad day indeed.
