Jim Pankovits

Jim Pankovits spent a lot of time playing in AAA and at the major league level between 1978 and 1991.Since then, he has spent his time managing in the minors.

He sent me a great note recently!

He tells me that his dad, Vince, managed a team in Pennington Gap, VA. in the early 50s.

That team had a huge rivalry with their Mountain State League rivals from Hazard Kentucky.

The rivalry was so fierce that Vince would sometimes spend the night in the local jail for protection!
