Letter to the Editor: A plea to baseball players

Dear baseball players,

Please stop spitting. Wear the same uniform: It's either pants, or it's socks and stirrups. You're a team after all.

Take off the showy necklaces and other jewelry. They have no place in a baseball game. Quit adjusting your gloves. Put your hats on straight. Trim your beards. Cut your hair. Pick up after yourself; the dugout looks like it is inhabited by a bunch of slobs.

Remember, whether you like it or not, you are a model for young people. We are already paying you an extravagant amount of money. Act like you appreciate it.

And, did I mention: Stop spitting?

Paul Nelson,

Emily
