High-profile prosecutor played to win

On Nov. 6, 1984, the city of Regina reverberated with the dramatic news that a guilty verdict had been rendered in a murder case that garnered headlines across the country.

The moment I saw Ralph Platner's face in the paper beside his obituary it was like I could hear his voice, which I had heard for years since the mid-1980s, saying: ''Programs! Programs!'' (Purchase takes place) ''Thank you. Have fun and enjoy the game.''

A friend introduced me to Ralph in the steam bath at the Jewish Community Centre many years ago. We exchanged a few good jokes. Afterward I would see him at ball games and I pointed him out to my kids: that guy who is always selling programs at the games. We also saw him at rallies in support of Jewish and Israeli causes - and there were many of those - where Ralph was a very strong supporter. When we heard of his death, we felt we had lost a friend, although we really hardly knew him.

Thank you for the write-up on Ralphie. He was an integral part of the baseball experience for me. A part of the Blue Jays culture has passed into history now. It would be appropriate to honour him and the game - a beautiful and non-violent family sport.
