Warren Buffett, A True Fan of the Game

This past Thursday (February 9, 2012), I had the opportunity to meet one of this country’s biggest and most notable baseball fans, Warren Buffett.  While presenting him a copy of my book, Deadball, A Metaphysical Baseball Novel, I had the chance to talk with him about his favorite team growing up.  Mr. Buffett started out a Washington Senators fan during the time he lived with his family in Washington, D.C. While still a kid, his family moved to Lincoln, Nebraska, where Mr. Buffett changed his allegiance to the Chicago Cubs, listening to their games on the radio with the play-by-play provided by none other than Ronald Reagan.

Eventually, Mr. Buffett’s allegiance turned to the St. Louis Cardinals with the acquisition of future Hall of Famer Stan Musial.  Mr. Buffett remains today an avid fan of the Cardinals.  As is apparent from his role at the helm of Berkshire Hathaway Inc., Mr. Buffet certainly knows how to pick ’em. Here’s hoping he enjoys the story of Deadball.
