Thanks for sharing the story of Honus Wagner, Erik. Never knew this before and really wish I did. In this day and age, I sincerely doubt someone like him, who was a good teammate and didn’t do anything for fame, really exists. I doubt I would fit his mold much — your actions speak louder than the money you make.
