Reply to "Happy Birthday!"

Al Kaline was born in Baltimore.

My father was not born in the US, and when he came here he knew nothing about baseball, but he wanted to assimilate so he tried to learn the sport. My father was a chemist.
So, one day, as the Tigers were coming to town for a weekend series, my father said to my brother and me, "What the Senators need is an acid pitcher."
My brother and I didn't understand and asked him what he meant.
He said, "They need someone to neutralize Alkaline."
