“Mr. Basha used to be a neighbor of mine, although I did not know immediately know it. My son, about 13, came home one day from carousing in the neighborhood. I asked where he had been. He replied ‘we were at Eddie’s house playing tennis.’ You know where this story is headed. It was Eddie Basha. He was like that, a kind man who was for the kids. Needless to say, I did not mind my son going there to play tennis. R.I.P. Mr. Basha.”
Words struggled to exit her throat: “They let us see him. I sat there, behind the curtains and sobbed and hugged my son’s leg. I pleaded, Oh God, Oh God! How can I live without him?” Ten years ago, this month, this East Valley mother buried her only son.

It's a Saturday afternoon, and a multitude of fans – 25,000 total throughout a day defined by a peek-a-boo sun – meander underneath Chase Field's retractable roof for the annual D-Backs annual FanFest. The day is a prelude to the upcoming season – an opportunity for the Diamondback faithful to snag a few autographs, take a few cuts against a wiffleball-lobbing Wade Miley and, most importantly, bask in the glow of the lovely optimism that comes before the realities of a 162-game season commence.

Razors in candy, drunk drivers, smashed pumpkins, kidnapping, burglary and drunken assaults are just some of the crimes most worry about as Halloween night creeps closer. Since there are often rises in crimes such as theft, assault and DUI, it is important for both adults and children to be alert and stay safe this year.

Regarding the letter by Dr. Jeff Eger in Friday’s paper, “Is Grace getting fair treatment?”: I’m surprised that it was written by a doctor. He thinks that we should give the man a break. He also says, “I know Mark violated the law with a DUI.” Mark didn’t violate the law once; he violated it twice, and after the first time the Diamondbacks warned him that if he did it again, he would be done. Dr. Eger also mentions “broadcasters and players who enjoy a drink or two after the game.” This was not just “a drink or two”; Mark’s alcohol level was twice the legal limit.
Are we, as a community, being too hard on Mark Grace the man? I look back when Jerry Colangelo got Mark Grace to come here, for a reduction in salary, with a mutual vision of being World Series champion. Was Mark a great leader on the field, in the locker room, and in our community? Was he an integral part of getting the Diamondbacks to the World Series? Did he and Curt Schilling keep their untested and underdog team motivated and loose playing against the established and mighty N.Y. Yankees? You can feel Mark’s passion, spirit and understanding of the game of baseballl when he was broadcasting the D-Back games to us.
