One Out

I used to deliver the Martins Ferry Times-Leader. Sometimes it was a hassle but mostly it was something I really enjoyed. There was a tiny house on my route that was tucked between the Calvary and the First Presbyterian Churches in St. Clairsville, Ohio. The house was probably only about 250 square feet but contained the nicest old guy you’d ever want to meet: Ben Davis. Ben loved baseball and in the summers, he liked listening to the Pirates on KDKA-AM as called by Bob “The Gunner” Prince. I mowed Ben’s yard as well but I never felt right taking any money for such a small job, so eventually I just mowed it for free. I believe he passed away in the early 70’s – still I’ll never forget his wonderful personality and how much he liked the Pirates.
