Alan Alop is a lawyer in Chicago where he is a Deputy Director of the Legal Assistance Foundation of Metropolitan Chicago. He and his son Jim are long-suffering Cubs fans. Alan remains entranced by the game of baseball.
Doc Noel was chosen to play shortstop for the 1959 and 1960 All Star teams of the Skokie Little League Indians, and was elected into the 2002 National Adult Baseball Association (NABA) All Stars in Sacramento, California. He enjoys his career in health promotion, but continues to play, manage, watch – and write and speak about – baseball. Playing catch with his sons Andrew and Adam is still a favorite pastime.
