TGraff - wonderful comments! Thanks for your graciousness. My first cousin, Bryan Brown, was a two-time MVP at Tulane and I believe also went to Jesuit. He still lives in NO, and I'll be with him (and his wife and kids) at the beach in a month (to rag him over our victory, particularly since I recall him beating us twice in Tally with game winning hits back in the early 90's ....once when we were ranked #1 in the country). He handled one of our top pitchers at the time, Gar Finnvold, with ease. I wonder if you remember Brian. He was drafted by the BoSox, made it to the AAA and then had some injuries that caused him to call it a career. His first roommate was Aaron Sealey in single A ball with the Sox.
