Everyone should know Tom Grieve, and I barely remember Dave Anderson. That made me think of Ben Grieve he really fell off the map.

Sounds good, although I'd prefer cards to hang up with the rest of mine, wouldn't happen to have more than 1 card of those 4 players youd wanna sell would ya?? :coolball:

Last I heard of him was in 2005 when he was with the Cubs for 23 games with 25 AB's and a .250 average.

 

Heard some reports that Ben was "broke". He made over $14 million while he was playing in salary and bonuses.

 

I am not going to speculate on any stories or tales that somebody is circulating.

My eldest called me about going to Fan Fest in Arlington next weekend. Has anybody ever been to this? The list of players and former players scheduled to participate is pretty good, but I was hoping for some feedback from someone who has been in the past.
