(Hey!  The first Mets manager!  This was WAY before I was following the Mets.  I guess Rebecca is really into baseball!  We get a lot of Yogi-isms, and Tommy Lasorda quotes, and the occasional Casey Stengel quote.  Fine by me.  I love baseball.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Fantastic Sunday Jumble!  For some reason, I had always thought that there were more birds in baseball.  But, there are only the Cardinals, the Orioles, and the Blue Jays.  Maybe I was thinking of football?  In football you have the Cardinals, the Seahawks, the Eagles, the Falcons, and the Ravens.  What do the call the entrance ways to the field in an arena, or stadium?  For some reason I’m drawing a blank!

Initially, I thought we *might* have a new word, but as it turns out WROGHT is NOT a word!  WROUGHT is, but not WROGHT.  By a strange coincidence, though, the circled positions still gave me the letters I needed to solve the Jumble answer.  I guess some times being lucky is as good as being good!  At least four of the jumbles  looked new today.  The answer letter layout was pretty cool.  I’m sure that some of you struggled some in getting the answer.  Nice job on the cartoon, Jeff.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
