To Jeanie and the Buss Family:

I had the honor and privilege to meet your father, when I invited him 28 years ago to throw out the "First Ball" prior to an NCAA Division II College World Series Game. He could have said "no", but he drove out (along with Bob Steiner) and couldn't have been nicer. He was honored that night as an "American Sports Legend" and it felt good to bestow that honor upon him. He was in great company too, for on another night we honored Chuck "The Rifleman" Connors.

More importantly, he had a great time. So good, in fact, he later mentioned it in an interview in the Los Angeles Times.

I never had the chance to see him again after that, but will never forget the joy it brought him and me, for having made the right choice and extend the invitation and for his acceptance.

He was a true gentleman and was gracious and polite. He took time to get to know me and I treasure it as one of the most emotional moments of my life.

I join all of you in mourning his loss, but celebrating his championship life!
May many fond memories of him console you in the days ahead.
