February 25, 2012 "I was born in Chicago in 1936, but my family moved to St. Louis when I was an infant. I grew up being a Cubs fan due to my father playing ball in the Cubs minor league organization. He played High School ball against Phil who was a pitcher at the time, at least that is what recall. I also loved to hear anything about my baseball hero, number 44, Phil Cavaretta. I especially remember matching him against the St. Louis hero, Stan Musial, when the Cubs were in town. Many times Phil did not disappoint me. Please rest in peace Phil" - Mickey Neustaedter (Orlando, FL)
