The Perez-Steele family in the lobby of the grand Otesaga Hotel by Lake Otsego in Cooperstown. We’re chatting with Burleigh Grimes and Bill Dickey, two Hall of Famers who are no longer with us. In fact, it is sad to think of all of those baseball legends who have passed on since 1980, the first of my yearly pilgrimages to Cooperstown.
