The two halves of me, the New Mexico girl living in California (and a ragin’ Giants baseball fan) collided today.
For Christmas someone gave me a page-a-day Giants and baseball trivia calendar.
The entry for January 14, 2008:
“Who is the only National Baseball Hall of Famer born in New Mexico.”
Wha! I didn’t even know we had one!
Ralph Kiner is his name, he was born in Santa Rita and he played most for the Pittsburgh Pirates. He’s now a broadcaster for the Mets.
Oh Fair New Mexico, how I love to learn your little secrets.

Glad to see you’re a San Francisco Giants fan! I’ve been one myself since I was born bleeding orange and black.
