lol! No, he was a machinist, a critical occupation during that time. He worked at a bomber plant near Detroit, Mich. till the end of the war and then was layed off. We lived in near poverty for several years after that but both parents were avid baseball fans. I remember always listening to Tigers games on WJR when we could get it on the radio. Players like Trout, Kell, Newhouser, Groth & Wakefield come to mind. Seemed they always ended up 5th. Then a little later, two kids by the name of Kuenn & Kaline came on the scene. Ahh, those were the days!
