Other than my wife and kids, I’m most proud of playing baseball and football at BYU and playing professional baseball for the St. Louis Cardinals. I only played for one year before I was released. I played outfield. Centerfield mostly. I’m sure there are stats somewhere but I didn’t keep track of them. They weren’t great.
