  1. I heard the rumor Trout had a medical exemption (but not specifically for HGH) AND about the use of buzzing discs and band aids last year on a golf course in Vegas while paired with some ex-minor leaguers/college players. One had played briefly for Cora in Puerto Rico winter ball but didn’t mention him using it with Houston or the Sox. Interesting how it all came up suddenly last week.
  2. My high school biology teacher (and baseball card avatar here) George "Red" Witt pitched in relief in a couple of the Yankee blow out wins in this series. He also pitched for the 1962 Los Angeles Angels before calling it a day and going into teaching.
  3. So the Detroit born brother of drummer Sad Elvin and pianist Sad Hank? Why didn’t you say so?
  4. Don’t forget Sparkle Farkel and the Twins, Simon and Gar Farkel. That’s a fine looking family you’ve got there Frank!
  5. My son works at a grocery store in this neighborhood and has assisted both Mike and Kobe over the past few months along with other minor celebs. So the Trouts have been in this neighborhood for awhile now or they just finally made the sale public.
  6. I believe it was their swing guy in the rotation Daryl Patterson but my 10 year old little leaguer brain could be mistaken. I do distinctly remember that when Detroit native and local homegrown idol Willie Horton took his place in left field I remember the fans in the stands behind him began banging the wooden chairs in unison and chanting his name. This was less than a year after the '67 riots when Willie took to the city streets in uniform with a megaphone to try and quell the locals. Only a couple of months before Willie would throw out Lou Brock on a close play at the plate to help seal a WS win over the Cards.
  7. Same here but at Tiger Stadium. Then 1973 for first visit to Anaheim Stadium.
  8. In before AO can post that he's a LB State Dirtbag...
  9. Listen to the Astros radio broadcasts on Sirius XM, he's their color guy.
  10. Another prominent Villa Park High Spartan athlete back in the ‘70s was their point guard Harry Heineken. At THS we had a bored upper classman who used to appear in our yearbook posing as freshman “Bud Wiser” but I believe Harry’s to be his real birth name.
