Back When There Was Baseball: Tom Griffin

It is rare that a player who played in every year during the decade of the 1970s is not recognized by either Rex or Steve, but our guest this week fits into that category.  Tom Griffin joins us this week as we delve into his "mysterious" career.  When we looked at Tom's stats, we were left scratching our heads as to how a player with this much impact on the game went unrecognized by us.  Tom had a career record of 77-94 with an ERA of 4.07.  He played for the Houston Astros, San Diego Padres, California Angels, San Francisco Giants and Pittsburgh Pirates in a career that spanned 1969-1982.  One very important statistic to note about Tom's career is that once he made the Houston Astros as a roster player out of spring training (1972), he never went back to the Minor Leagues.  Join us as we go Back When There Was Baseball with our guest Tom Griffin.
