The other day my road travels took me to Fargo, ND, to address an agricultural credit conference. Fargo is one of my favorite places. As a child growing up on a dairy farm in Upstate New York, I followed the New York Yankees’ Roger Maris of Fargo. He was my favorite player because both of us were left-handed batters. Of course, he broke Babe Ruth's record with 61 home runs in 1961, which was during the time I was playing little league and American league baseball.
