I looked him up and saw e never made it to the bigs, but pitched as high as AAA at Nashville for the team. I had it in my mind that he must have reached the majors since I remembered him. Now I'm remembering guys from the minors.
Interesting tidbit on Steve Im not sure if hes still doing this but a couple of years ago he was a health/gym teacher I think at one of the high schools in northern kentucky.
