Miami Fan...Were you there the night the pelota came thru the screen and hit the great Pedro Mir right smack in the middle of his forehead?? He was sitting at his players manager seat when it happened. I was on the bench 1 player away from him. I swear all of the players mouths fell open...THERE WAS BLOOD EVERYWHERE!! THE PARAMEDICS STRETCHERED HIM OUT!! He was back within a week...like the champion he was...and in true form handing out fines left & right.

He was 71 years young...Not only did he command my respect, but my admiration as well!!!
