A Holdingford noteable retires

Baseball has always been a big part of Holdingford's history. I thought this would be appropriate here.
This was in the Pioneer Press's Charley Walters column.
"Joe Brinkman, who is from Holdingford, Minn., will retire this month after 34 seasons as a major league baseball umpire. His career has included three World Series and three All-Star Game appearances. His 4,505 games ranks fifth on baseball's all-time list and is more than six of the eight major league umpires in the sport's Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y., worked."
