He Was Known

Carmen and Don were always very generous to invite my husband, Coop, and me to go with them on various trips when Don was speaking or otherwise engaged in various activities. Once we had tagged along to Cincinnati (I think because Don had gotten some passes to a Cincinnati Reds game from one of their coaches whom he had befriended).

We were leaving the stadium after the game and were just outside the team locker room with Carmen, Don, and his coaching friend, when we heard a crowd from behind a fenced-off area yelling “Hey, Coach, can we get your autograph?” We just sort of ignored the crowd and walked on. My thought was: “Aren’t we special to be walking with this baseball coach.” Then we heard call again: “Hey, Coach Meyer, can we get your autograph?” That was when I felt VERY special to be Don’s friend!
