    Felicidades, Kiki:

    My "new and improved" computer was down for a couple of days and my very capable daughter Didi just got it back to useful again, so I'm a bit late in telling you that it was a real treat to learn about your being honored. You will be the standard bearer for all those father-managers who have walked the walk before and perhaps didn't get the recognition they deserved.

    I am truly happy for you, pal, and I can just imagine how your boys and the rest of the family feels.

    Arriba Kiki!

    Your friend, Hap

    Frank Baltazar to be inducted into the "Calif. Boxing Hall of Fame"

    With all the big names that I'm hearing that are going to be inducted this year, I'm going to feel like Ross Perot's running mate, James Stockdale, who during Perot's 1992 presidential candidacy said " Who am I? what am I doing here? ".

    Re: California Boxing Hall of Fame 2007 Inductees

    "The Good Man"

    The good man's history flies away before him
    like a dance-partner's broken string of cultured pearls,
    leaving him holding all those glowing memories
    in the goblet of his upturned hands.

    And people rush to bring him more, more
    reasons for his generous thanksgiving.
    Blessed from birth with a good
    family, a good mind, a good
    sense of humor, good nature and his gift,
    the good man multiplies his talents
    a hundredfold, blessing from their births
    his own good children,
    and participating in creation
    in other joyful ways as well.

    In the picture-book garden of virtues,
    without fanfare, without flags,
    the good man gently illustrates honor.
    Gray-haired, smiling, he holds
    toward the reader his joined hands,
    a bowl brimming with light.


    ------------------------------

    Congratulations Frank, an honor well deserved !!

    Re: Frank Baltazar to be inducted into the "Calif. Boxing Hall of Fame"

    Frank,

    I often re-read my old boxing magazines, and whenever I come across a fight report of Frankie or Tony and see Frank Sr. written now I think, "I KNOW that guy". Which, I might add, while I don't really as well as I'd like or should, is a thrill for a fan such as myself.

    So many of us fans have either missed out on the 'glory days' by way of being born too late... or wish we could have lived a life closer to the sport than we have.

    You've seen quite a bit.. and being able to chat with you is really a great thing for me and I am sure all of us. Thanks for answering questions and giving your time to the site.

    Again, Congrats and be proud.

    Frank Baltazar to be inducted into the "Calif. Boxing Hall of Fame"

    Thanks Chris:

    I enjoy talking (Cyber-Talking) with guys like you, people like myself, Ron, Gordoom, Hap and some other old timers enjoy sharing our experience in the world of boxing, and I think that all of us do it without putting on any air's or trying to give the impression that we know it all, though we been around the sport many, many years, we, I think all of us would say, we are still learning.

    Thanks again,Chris.


    Frank

    Nah ! I wrote a poem about Max Baer once that my professor liked, but I'll stick with the non-fiction stuff. My school quarter, and my impending graduation (finally at age 43 !) are 11 days away and its been very ugly so I haven't been on the forum in ages. I was reading about your induction for the first time last night and the kind of gentleman you are reminded me of a poem I'd read recently that could say in words what I could not. I'm glad you liked it and congratulations again it couldn't have happened to a nicer man.

    There once was a fightman named Frank.
    His boys beat up boys for the bank.
    Then the time came to be,
    and he declared yesirree,
    my boys, they were always top rank!

    Re: Frank Baltazar to be inducted into the "Calif. Boxing Hall of Fame"

    Ooh I love limericks ! Here's my pathetic stab at one:

    There once was a fightman named Baltazar
    With sons who's hands held a shining star
    Fight wisdom he gave them
    Showered love without shame
    Now Papá is inducted
    Into the Boxing Hall of Fame !

    =)~~~

    There once was a fightman from C-A
    he posts here with us everyday.
    His boys were enshrined
    and for Frank this was fine
    but now its his turn to have a big day
