Best baseball and banking (and barbecue) story

Throwing Things has a great post on the appointment of former Philadelphia Phillies centerfielder Garry Maddox to the board of directors of the Federal Reserve in Philadelphia, with a link to this Bloomberg news story.

Oddly enough, Garry Maddox is also a sponsor of (and contestant in) barbecue contests in Philadelphia, as shown on the Food Channel, including this one coming up later in June.

(I must confess that most of the MLB games I've seen were in Veterans' Stadium, with Maddox in the OF, in the years 1977-1983. He was smooth in the field - long legs, huge strides, all of it needed when Luzinski was in left.)
