John Grubb- 1972-1987 Major Leaguer
John Grubb played for the Padres in 1972-1976. He spent 1977 and part of 1978 with the Cleveland Indians, and spent 1978-1982 with the Rangers. From 1983-1987 He was in Detroit.
I asked him recently about his very brief time in the minors, especially in 1986 when he played with the Nashville Sounds.
He says that he played there briefly while rehabbing from a shoulder injury. He said it was a nice place, but he was glad to be back in Detroit.
Concerning Kentucky, he says that his oldest son, Chris, went to UK and still follows them closely.
