Like Father

“Spread the diaper in the position of the diamond with you at bat. Then fold second base down to home and set the baby on the pitcher's mound. Put first base and third together, bring up home plate and pin the three together. Of course, in case of rain, you gotta call the game and start all over again.”
Jimmy Piersall, on how to diaper a baby in the old days, 1968

The little guy on the left is my grandson at age three days. The one on the right is his father at the same age. Happy Fathers Day!
