Sweet Like Candy
I wrote a couple of weeks ago about receiving a Tom Dukes autograph that I was hoping to complete. The other half of the card is a former Astros utility player that only had one Major League at bat in which he struck out: Alonzo "Candy" Harris.
While he is not a true "Cup of Coffee" player, since he appeared as a pinch runner in four different games, he does fit the model of the types of interviews I typically do. I have been trying to get him to respond to any message about possibly talking with us, but so far he is unwilling. Hopefully one day he can tell us the story about making it to the Big Leagues.
For now, I will be happy that he is a very willing signer if you enclose a $5 bill.
