Spec loved the game

He was a husband to Tommye, and until the day she died she tried to make him behave. He was a one-man neighborhood watch, who never stopped peeking through his blinds. He was a surrogate grandfather to the cute little girl next door, and for 26 years she loved Mr. Spec. He was a baseball man, who sold peanuts, swapped players and rooted for the home team.
