Re: Passing of the Best!
Last time I saw Jim was at the 1986 Men's Major SP National Tournament in Maumee, Ohio. He was playing with John Imlay's team, Imlay Realty Bombats. He was still a beast of a player with the heart of a lion then at age 51. A great ballplayer and as gracious a human being as there ever was. I believe he had just been inducted into the ASA hall of fame the year before in 1985. RIP Big Jim.
