I [played with ol lefty back on that 1973 Mel High team. I was just talking about him and Darrell Hammond's last night when we saw Darrell's net flex show. Bruce and all the guys were a great group. I was the back up catcher and caught Jim many times. He will be missed. Gator!!

I was just watching a game and a lefty pitcher reminded me of Jim. I Googled Jim's name, and found out he had passed away. We played together at BCC in 1975. I remember him as a good guy, and a tough guy to hit against. May he rest in peace.
