RIP, Mrs. Phelps

Margaret Whitton, the actress who played the owner of the Indians in the "Major League" movies, has passed away. This paragraph jumped out at me from her obituary today:

“Major League” played to her love of baseball. She was a Yankee fan who had season tickets to the old Yankee Stadium, her husband said, but did not renew them at the new stadium, which she found “soulless.”

Wow. I could have fallen in love with her.

One other thing: I have no doubt - NONE WHATSOEVER - that she wouldn't have agreed with me totally on Aroldis Chapman.

Margaret, we hardly knew ye.
