What I didn't realize until stumbling across a great Boston Globe article is that Lepcio remained a fan of the game long after retiring, enough so that he was a season ticket holder at Fenway park for over 3 decades! To read this interesting article, which touches on, amongst other things, how Lepcio met President Harry Truman on the field during his first major league start, go here. The highlight of the article has to be his complaint about watching modern day baseball:
''It's discouraging when there are two strikes and it's the first inning and everybody stands. It's like being in church, for gosh sakes, up and down, up and down."
