Here is an eloquent and moving essay about the "lost boys of summer" by the SF Weekly's Matt Coker. He interviewed Doug Gladstone, author of the 2010 book, A Bitter Cup of Coffee: How the MLB and the Players Association Threw 874 Retirees a Curve, about the many MLB players who did not receive pension benefits. Nellie was one of them, and he was happy and honored to get to know Doug in the last year of his life.
