Gordy played a fist full of games for the Cubs between 1957 and 1958. He sent me a note recently about his playing days.
He says that he still follows the Cubs, and his hometown team, the Reds.
"I played my first Major League game against the Reds in my home town. It was very exciting for me. I caught and went two for five."
He also played for teams in Des Moines, Burlington, San Antonio, Fort Worth, Houston, and Amarillo.
Mr. Massa mentions that he played 1st base for Edler Hi in Cincy. His senior year, they played a Louisville team at the old Louisville baseball field.
Future football greats Paul Hornung and Sherrill Sipes played.
