I was just reading about Brummers and
it sparked another Newark memory. I recall getting "Knothole"
Cards in school and for a penny you could go see the Newark Bears
play ay Ruppert Stadium. They also had the Black Yankees - an all
negro league team. They were great - there was no bias in watching
them. I also recall the House Of David team and one that played
on donkeys but its a little hazy. Newark wasn't a city - it was
a frame of mind. I'll always be a Newarker.
