It is with much sadness that I learned of the departure of Dodger pitcher Tom Niedenfuer. He will be greatly missed by his many fans in Los Angeles.
Besides being an outstanding pitcher, Niedenfuer has shown himself to be a person of high ethical and moral standards. With all the drug-related problems in the sports world, it is nice to have players such as Tom for role models for our children.
The Dodgers have not only lost a great pitcher, but they will have to look hard to find individuals with the same capacity for tolerance and high moral character. Los Angeles will miss Tom Niedenfuer.
