Mark, Ed & Farley - Target Field, September 18, 2010

What do the Dead Sea Scrolls and Ed Kasputis have in common?  On September 17th both were in St. Paul (St. Paul is the twin city to Minneapolis).

The Scrolls were on display at the Science Museum of Minnesota.  Ed was in town to see his last Major League ballpark.

“Seeing all 30 current major league ballparks has been a great journey that took me 14,740 days to complete.  Once I learned that the Dead Sea Scrolls were in town, I immediately knew that it was the PhD thing to see before I caught a cab for Target Field,” said Kasputis.

You can listen to the PhD Ceremony for Ed Kasputis on our next podcast featuring the Cleveland Indians (Ed’s first game was at Cleveland Municipal Stadium on May 10, 1970).  Farley and Mark will perform the PhD examination of Ed.
