During a seven year pro career, Tom Grant hung out in the outfield for the Cubs, and briefly for the Indians organizations. He did have his cup of coffee with the Cubs appearing in 16 games in 1983.
He sent a note about his career AND Kentucky!
"When I played in AAA Iowa one of my favorite ballparks was in Louisville." He remembers it being in the fairgrounds area, and he recalls good crowds!
The only problem, he says, is that it was turf.
On a hot summer day he would put his feet in a bucket of ice to cool down his spikes!
