My (Martin’s) friend and fellow publisher Bob Kalechovsky of the estimable and pioneering Micah Publications asked me yesterday whether I might be related to Lynwood “Schoolboy” Rowe, who was the star pitcher for the Detroit Tigers in the 1930s. I’m sad to say that—given his golden arm and good looks that drove the ladies wild—I’m not. On the other hand, the fact that he died of a heart attack aged 50 offers one pause. I wish I could return the favor, but as of yet I have not found a Lomke who played cricket—at least at a high enough level to appear on the Internet’s search engines.
