Les Purce: Take Your Glove To The Game

Dave Beck

For many people, baseball is a game of hope, possibility and optimism. Les Purce from Olympia, Washington, takes a baseball mitt to every game that he goes to. His family teases him about it, but Les believes that this is going to be the game where he catches that foul ball or home run. That sense of optimism goes all the way back to his childhood in Pocatello, Idaho, in the 1950s where he hung out at a ball park called Halliwell Stadium. Les Purce speaks with KUOW's Dave Beck.
