Here, Frisch references the first players' strike in MLB history and commits to attending an Old Timers Day. Dated 4/23/72, the 8-1/2 x 11" letter reads in part, "Dear Buzzie, Thanks for the invitation and I will be on hand. That strike sort of hits the Old Flash right in the pit of the stomach and I hope they do not have another one real soon. Who knows? It will be nice seeing you folks once again, those affairs to me are always real interesting. I do think it creates interest in the old pastime." EX-MT (staple mark) with "9-10" signature. A file copy of Bavasi's unsigned 4/26/72 reply is included. Auction LOA from JSA.
