Letters: The Dodgers' baseball guy

Re "Pastime always is his present," Column One, July 29

What a great article on Dodgers scout George Genovese.

I met him about 10 years ago when he spotted my then-17-year-old nephew at a park throwing and hitting. Genovese gave him some fielding tips and a lot of baseball knowledge in about half an hour. My nephew and I will always be grateful for his willingness to share what he knew.

I'm glad he's still going strong at 91.
