Bob Luman, who turned down a tryout with the Pittsburgh Pirates according to this bio. http://www.rockabilly.nl/artists/bluman.htm
OK City SLicker started a interesting subject with DJ's that made an effort at being recording artists. This led me to ponder singers that became a success after pursuing a baseball career.
Jim Reeves was a radio announcer but before that he signed with a St. Louis Cardinals farm team.
There are others who did likewise. What's your recollections?
