     Well into his 70s, former Negro League star Sam Allen still looks like a ballplayer. Local baseball could not have a finer spokesman.  

Like the game itself, Sam remains forever young.

     The Norfolk Tides honored Allen for the second time on June 2 at Harbor Park.  They saluted him the first time on July 18, 2004.  

     Back then, Allen was surrounded by his Negro League buddies Claude Cousins, Walt Lundy and Tom “Tata Hustler” Burt.  The legendary Buck O’Neil was the special guest and Daun Hester was Norfolk’s vice mayor.
