    Milt Wilcox has showdogs I think.

    Dwight Lowry died of a heart attack at 39


    No one could find Marty Castillo this summer when they had a reunion weekend at Comerica.

    Darrell Evans and Rusty Kunts were coaching in the minors last I heard.

    Tom Brookins still spells his name "Brookens"
    World Series or Bust. Guess What? Bust........again.

    I believe Tom Brookens is operating a farm in PA, and coaching his daughter's softball team.

    I think Milt Wilcox competes trick dogs, not show dogs. He was on ESPN 2 with his dog "Sparky" chasing a frisbee.

    Last someone knew, Marty Castillo was selling insurance and cars in Florida?

    Rusty is 1st base coach for the Pirates

    Tom Brookins still spells his name "Brookens"
    And Kunts still spells his name Kuntz genius.

    Here's a tip. If you're going to be condescending about how someone spells a name, spell all the names in your post correctly as well.

    And stop making up trades.

    Time for a bump. Marty Castillo has been a bad boy, this is mugshot #3 since 1999:

    Maybe we could start a "Where are the now?" thread about released MTS posters. There are probably even a few current MTSers who could tell us exactly where they are!

    Wow, too bad. Sad to see a guy go from being a small but important piece of a great Championship team to being a bum.

    I remember Castillo showed up to an 84 reunion and I thought it was Wayne Fontes. Dude was huge.

    I'm disgusted. I had a crush on him and loved the fact that a bench guy could be a hero. Nope, not a hero, just a jerk with some lucky timing. What a shame.
