Ike, I've always been so proud of you, my one tie to MLB and the great old PCL. My three sons carry on the pride and memories.Ike was my father's (Hubert Caveney) first cousin.Here's one memory some may not know. Told to me by an uncle who saw him play (Kenneth Malovos): during his playing days (PCL, pre-MLB I think, but not sure), he wore no glove playing short stop. A rule was imposed that all players had to wear a glove. Ike said he couldn't 'feel' the ball with a glove, so he cut a big hole in the palm of the glove, so the ball would still strike his bare hand.Other notes: I have a copy of Ike's pamphlet, published after his playing days, "The Baseball Merry-Go-Round" (which Joe DiMaggio signed for me some years ago). And when I visited the MLB Hall of Fame in the late '80's, Ike's picture was there, part of an exhibit on Joe DiMaggio. I also got a complete set of the (few) documents the HoF had on Ike, mostly contract negotiation letters, because they offer them to any relatives of MLB players.STTL

Hi, My name is Mark. I love Baseball with all of my heart. I have a Baseball bat that Jamie Caveney used when he played for the Pacific Coast league.(S.F. Seals) My understanding is that when Jamie came to the Pacific Coast League,He took over Joe Dimagio's spot and Joltin Joe was sent to the outfield. The rest is history. Jamie's bat is a 35" Louisville Slugger. Early 1920's I think. Anyways thanks for reading. I'm sure Jamie could tell lot's of stories. I wish I could have heard them all..... Mark
