This Norman Rockwell painting was called "The Rookie," and is shows a rube showing up for spring training with the big club, clearly not as daunted as he should be to be in the same room as Ted Williams. By the way, you could have bought a copy of the magazine for 15 cents when it came out in 1957. The original sold at auction last year for $22 million-something. By the way, the picture is supposed to represent Mickey McDermott, a mildly successful pitcher whose checkered career led him to becoming a drinking buddy of Paul Gleason, the actor who played Mr Vernon in The Breakfast Club and the officious police lieutenant in Die Hard. In fact, Gleason always played a self-important, bumptious oaf.
