Played golf with Johnny Grubb (Padres, Indians, Rangers, Tigers) Friday
What a classy guy. Not a VT alum, but a Richmonder, and he spent 15 years in the league, including 1984 Tigers World Championship. And a good golfer - probably about 80. I asked him who was the hardest pitcher to hit. "Nolan Ryan. Without a doubt." Nickname? "Grubby or Grub-man". Worst beaning? "Jim Lonborg. My thigh had a dent in it." Cool to hit the white dented ball with a former pro - and a good man.
