Wow, I hadn't thought about Ken Dixon in a long time. On one trip to Arlington back in the day I stayed at the team hotel. Had breakfast next to Dixon in the restaurant and he struck up a conversation, I guess because we were wearing Oriole gear. Nice guy.
Great story, Bob! Oddly enough, Dixon's name came up on Roch Kubatko's MASN blog yesterday. Even with the egg he laid last night, Miguel Gonzalez hasn't lost consecutive decisions as a starter in his big league career (spanning 33 starts). He just tied Ken Dixon's franchise record in that regard.
