First, I contacted Ray Hathaway (#21 on the list) and interviewed him on the phone.
On Sunday, I drove 12 hours to and from Oxnard to interview the oldest living player, Tony Malinosky.
Later that day, I traveled to Ventura to locate Don Lang (#9). I was able to contact Don's wife and she explained that he cannot speak or recognize anyone. So, unfortunately, no interview there.
And finally, I had to take Eddie Joost (#16) off my list. He told me in very simple terms that he doesn't want to be bothered by any writers. Oh well.
So, four off my list--I'm making good progress!
