Dave Drage

Dave was a great southpaw on the baseball team. Was a little lazy running to first after getting a hit, and could've had some doubles if he hustled, but he was just real casual. Had a little Triumph 3 convertable he used to cruise a round in.

Dave had a lifelong love of British cars and several times during my Automotive career we crossed paths. Dave was probably the best leather upholstery man in Salt Lake. His casual attitude towards everything made his career more than a little bumpy but he was an artist in the medium of leather.

I forgot to mention, Dave was the only guy who got thrown out at first after hitting what would be a single to the outfield because of his very casual move to first base. it happenned more than once, it provided alot of laughs.
