An Artful Homage to Larry Dierker

¬†An Artful Homage to Larry Dierker from my 75 year old “little” brother, John C. McCurdy. John and his lovely wife Linda of nearly 55 years live in Beeville, Texas, north of Corpus Christi, where both are quite active in our old McCurdy roots town before our family moved to Houston on December 31, 1942. John is a genuine curmudgeon and one of the loudest complainants in South Texas over the rarity of Astros baseball over these rural system baseball delivery programs. Apparently you need to have Direct TV to get all the Astros games at home. With cable, you have to wait for the Astros to come up on the Rangers telecasts to see them play live at home. – At any rate, my little brother John is a passionate and talented cartoonist too. He drew this cartoon and sent it to me with the following inscription about a month ago. I have been saving it until the next time I saw Larry, but decided today to send it this way. – You will get the original in person, Mr. Dierker, at either the June SABR meeting – or at our next luncheon together, whichever comes first. Hope you enjoy the talent, the intentionality, and the effort that Brother John put into this piece. I know your career meant a lot to him as one of the surviving original Houston MLB baseball fans.
