Re: Pro Baseball and hit makers
Tony Conigliaro made a few recordings around 1964 including a very cute record called Playing The Field. It charted in Boston. Richie Allen was part of the Ebonairs or something like that. They made some late 60s era soul records. Bernie Williams plays jazz guitar and even toured as a music artist.
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?
