Charles Gipson spent 14 years in professional baseball, playing pretty much every infield or outfield position except 1st.
He sent a great note to me recently about his career.
Mr. Gipson tells me that he still follows two of his former teams, the Astros and the Mariners. His favorite former player is Ken Griffey.
I asked about some of the minor league towns he played in, and he says he enjoyed his time in Durham and Memphis, but Round Rock was the best!
I asked Charles if he ever contributed to a book, and he mentions Mike Cameron's children's book.
Concerning Kentucky, he says that all minor league players love Kentucky because of the bat company in Louisville! You can get your own bats made!
