In case you missed it, the NY Times published a great article on ’Mr. Locker’, written by William Yardley. The article is titled ‘A High-Tech City’s Down-Home Hero.’
Yardley spent significant time following Jake, attending games and tailgates with the ‘Ferndawgs’, and in the process interviewing a lot of Jake’s friends and family for the story–one that focuses on the more personal and social aspect of Jake’s career. The article is one of the best summaries of Jake’s athletic career as well, one that touches on his legacy, his roots, and his future prospects.
