Re: Pro Baseball and hit makers
A guy who has concurrent baseball and music careers is umpire Joe West. I saw him hanging around a Toronto honky tonk with Jays manager John Gibbons and found out that Joe's a country performer who has recorded an album or two.
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?
