The Ghost of Ford Frick has been seen lurking around the baseball diamonds these days ready to bestow an asterisk on some record setting player. Urged on by his fellow members of the fourth estate the Ghost of Frick may visit us again with an abomination on the order of his asterisk of 1961. To do so today would make no more sense than it did then.
