From left: Frank Dardis, Dan Kramer, Maisa Kramer, James Kramer and Paul Scherrman at the Field of Dreams in 2015. Frank and Paul are two of my baseball heroes.

That’s a license plate I see every day in my downtown Des Moines parking ramp.

And naturally I think of Frank Dardis every time I see that plate. Frank was a crafty left-handed pitcher for the Peosta Cubs when I was a kid. He wore No. 38.

Frank’s a wonderful guy in addition to being a great baseball man. He’s a member of the Dubuque County Baseball Hall of Fame and was always very friendly to me.

Frank had the best pickoff move to first base. And he really knew how to get batters out.

He was also one of the Ghosts in “Field of Dreams.” He’s the guy who angrily chases Timothy Busfield after Busfield disrupted the game by walking across the field.

Massive crowd at Dodger Stadium tonight for a Wednesday game in April vs. Oakland.

Dodger fans are a very underrated fan base.
