"He instinctively can find the shining greatness of our American culture and does a good job of highlighting it (although he also does have those rare lapses when he writes about hockey, but that is something caused by impurities in the Eastern waters or something)." Erik Keilholtz

Making annual visits to Japan in the 1930s as a baseball ambassador of good will, he became an idol of fans there. He took the attack on Pearl Harbor as a personal affront. O'Doul died in San Francisco on December 7, 1969.
For the accompanying Lefty O'Doul BBQ I will ask Erik Keilholtz to suggest a fitting Japanese-inspired dish. (The only proviso: It must be cooked.)
Meantime, pull on your Seals jersey and delight in manifestations of the Euterpean muse via:
Salad: traditional Japanese cucumber salad (thinly sliced cukes, with rice wine vinegar, sugar, black sesame seeds), miso-sherry soup with green garlic/goat cheese croutons, and a grilled ribeye with a compound butter of shallot and Irish whiskey and wasabi demiglace served with rice pilaf and vegetable tempura.
Paired with a Kenwood Jack London Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon.
Of course I would pair the first course with a Robert Mondavi Fume Blanc Reserve or a Bonny Doon Malvasia Bianca. #
