Stu Rossmann’s heritage includes numerous family members who were baseball fans. They belonged to a generation who witnessed the game through a different lens. There was no free agency, thus they found comfort in knowing that their favorite players would probably be on their team year after year. Ballplayers were with one another ‘round the clock as a result of traveling by train or bus, cultivating a camaraderie not seen today. Every player was expected to play the field and take his turn at bat. Finishing what one started was the rule rather than the exception – there was no infamous pitch count. How often he enjoyed his family’s remembrances of a particular ballgame or player, for this would inevitably lead to expanded conversations pertaining to the varied experiences in their lives. These nostalgic musings would hold as prisoners his imagination and his curiosity.
