This is a tremendously obscure YouTube video, but for any baseball nuts in the GoDC community, you’ll dig this.
Buddy was originally from Gastonia, North Carolina, playing a total of 11 years here. Not only that, but he was a solid player, finishing up with over 1,500 hits and a .297 career average. And this was a career with a four-year gap, while he was flying 350 missions over Europe, fighting Nazi Germany.
I’m sorry, call me a cynic, but do you see Alex Rodriguez, Chipper Jones or Josh Beckett doing that?
Buddy passed away on February 18th, 2011, at the age of 94.
