Tom Bruno- 1976-1979 MLB
Tom Bruno spent time in the late 70s playing for the Blue Jays, Royals, and Cardinals. Tom now spends time fishing and hunting professionally! My dad is jealous!
I asked him specifically about playing for the Mud Hens in Toledo. He says that he really doesn't remember a lot about that time (blogger's note: as much as this blogger enjoys Toledo- autographed hot dog buns, a great art museum, and strangely named sports teams, I understand that there are those who see the town as unremarkable).
I asked Tom about books, and he mentions Doug Gladstone's "A Bitter Cup of Coffee". That one is about former major leaguers who's playing time ended before 1980, and they lost out on some significant benefits.
Concerning Kentucky, Tom mentions that he has done some championship walleye fishing at Cumberland Lake!
