Head of baseball's elite never forgot his dream - 07/12/05, 12 July 2005 [cached]
Dale and Ann Petroskey and their three kids live in Cooperstown, a short toss from what's formally known as the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.
"A nice little ballplayer," Petroskey said, using the phrase in the same casually complimentary way a scout would.At 5-foot-10, Frank is already taller than his dad, who was a nice little ballplayer himself.
Petroskey played second base on a team that won two national championships in a league for 15- and 16-year-olds.His career plan at that point was to be a baseball player, "the same as every other kid."
But when the swells showed up to see the All-Stars, Petroskey went home a wealthy young man. "The best night ever," he said, and not just because of the $25.
"I've been thinking about this," he said.
Petroskey graduated from Birmingham Groves High and MSU, worked his way up the Republican staff ladder in Lansing and Washington, D.C., and then spent 11 years with the National Geographic Society.
In early 1999, a friend of his from Capitol Hill was passing through Cooperstown.That, he said, is where all his years of exuberance paid off.
"I tell young kids, 'Don't ever hide your passion.'" Twenty-two years ago, Petroskey co-founded an international Tigers fan club called the Mayo Smith Society.Wherever he worked -- on the Hill, in the White House, at National Geographic -- he talked and talked up baseball.
"Everyone knew the game was my passion," he said.
