    Re: Digging for Diamonds.

    "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend", the song is in Gentleman Prefer Blonds.

    Glad I looked that up, it would drive me crazy all day.

    Re: Digging for Diamonds.

    In the movie "A League of Their Own", Dottie Hanson was called the "Queen of Diamonds".

    Girls played baseball, while the boys went off to war. Two sisters play for the same team and heated sibling rivalry takes place. Kit appreciates and loves the opportunity that she has been given. Dottie loves the game and gives it her all, while denying just how important it really is.

    My question has always been. Did Dottie drop the ball on purpose at the end of the movie, so her sister Kit could win the game?

    Re: Digging for Diamonds.

    Today when reading the newspaper, I caught an article, where Hall of Famer Ernie Banks, commented about how he felt both Buck O'Neil and Minnie Minoso belong in Baseball's Hall of Fame.

    Ernie dazzled Cub fans on Wrigley Field's baseball diamond.

    BarbaraAnn -

    I know we have other baseball threads but since you brought it up here - a special group last week voted in several old Negro League players into the Baseball Hall of Fame, but somehow left O'Neill - the only one still living, and in my opinion very deserving - out. I don't understand that, but all of these selection processes are at least somewhat subjective...

    As for A League Of Their Own...there's no crying on the baseball...diamond....

    (The train sequences for that film were shot here in my home county at the Santa Paula-Fillmore, CA train depot. They have very short "fun" train trips here in the local area, and Hollywood uses it a lot for location shooting since we're only about 70 miles away. It was a big deal, of course, when Geena Davis and Madonna were in town.)

    Oh, and Seals and Crofts sang a song called "Diamond Girl", and John Denver sang that "Some days are diamonds, some days are stones..."



    Thank you,

    Barry
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    Re: Digging for Diamonds.

    Our own Wrigley Field here in Chicago was also used as a film sight for the movie. "A League of their own".

    I especially like the scene in the movie, where the ball gets away from a ballplayer, and a woman of color, very skillfully throws it back.

    Many of my thoughts on baseball will appear in this "diamond thread".

    While diamonds are supposed to be a girl's best friend. I have made many friends on baseball's diamond.

    Re: Digging for Diamonds.

    The Seven dwarfs were known for digging diamonds. I especially like the scene in the movie, where Dopey has diamonds in his eyes.

    Re: Digging for Diamonds.

    I just watched a very good Wheaties commercial, where Curt Gibson hits a homerun and runs the bases, despite his bad legs.

    Diamond moments. They are everywhere. Do you have a diamond moment?

    Do you have a diamond on your finger?

    People in some countries in Africa are dismembered by terrorist groups if they don't give them diamonds
