Garry Jestadt- 1969 Expos

Garry Jestadt played for the 1969 Expos, the 71 Cubs, and he played for the Padres in 1971 and 1972.

He says that these days, he follows his local team, the Diamondbacks. Concerning Kentucky, he says that he never played in my state.

"I loved baseball growing up in Chicago. Loved the Cubs, and my hero was Ernie Banks. Great thrill to be drafted by the Cubs and eventually playing with Ernie in Chicago. The 1969-1971 Cubs were possibly the greatest Cubs teams ever. Even without a World Series victory they are a memorable group of players."
