Calligraphy & Baseball

This story has been around for awhile but I love it as it relates to two things that I love: baseball and beautiful penmanship.

When he does the lineup cards before each game, the cards are truly works of art. Linked below are a couple of articles written about him and his passion for calligraphy. Enjoy!
