    The baseball card hobby was also hit hard by the strike.

    What are your memories of the...

    I've always read it was named the Pesky Pole because of one home run that hit the foul pole. Since Pesky rarely hit homers, pitcher Mel Parnell named it Pesky's Pole so the Red Sox started calling it...
