Sixty-thousand empty seats never looked so good. Two weeks after his youngest daughter, 18-year-old Michelle, lost her seven-month-long battle with leukemia, Rod Carew returned to work. He walked out on the Anaheim Stadium field Friday afternoon, surveyed the deserted expanses of upper decks, felt the spongy turf beneath his cleats and filled his nostrils with the familiar smells of burgers grilling and cotton candy spinning.

It was in the spring of 1983, during the Palm Springs phase of the Angels' training, that Rod and Marilynn Carew invited my family to share Passover Seder at their rented condominium. The Carew girls were there--Charysse, Stephanie and Michelle--along with my wife, son and daughter. It was a warm and relaxed evening, highlighted by the shared reading of the Haggada, the story of Passover, the exodus from Egypt.

Rod Carew muses wistfully about the snow his daughter Michelle has never seen, the falling flakes she's never tasted, the powder she's never scooped in her hands.

Get some machine and let her watch the snow float down magically in the brilliant Southern California sunshine? No, he says, she'd be wise to that, would tell him, "Daddy, it doesn't snow here, you have to go to Big Bear or Mammoth to see the snow for real."
