The gentlemen (Negro League baseball players share their stories, Feb. 16) who spoke in Columbus the other day are true heroes and the ones that young people, black and white, should revere. Those men have true spirit. They experienced some things, good and bad, that no one else ever will. It”s their attitude about life in general that most impressed me. And, they used a word that has almost become a dirty word today: discipline, especially self-discipline. I know they have gone on to another engagement, but if you can, please send them word that they are true American treasures. I salute them.
