Well, I actually knew Jeff Ballard (as a kid in his hometown) and I couldn't touch him so be happy you at least got the hits!

Wow. I just have to say, that is fantastic. (no sarcasm intended)


Well, I know you ain't Willie Mays (your SayHey1 handle) coz he's from Alabama.


Billings, eh? Nice warm weather there, huh? LoL
I actually gigged there once (I'm a pianist). It was a child talent act, the Keane Bros. We opened for Red Skelton, which was awesome. He came backstage & we had a chance to meet him. . he was exactly like you'd expect him to be. Totally kindhearted dude.
This was in 1978, so Billings was still a fairly small town. The venue was in like the main town hall, Memorial Hall or something. And there was another building which they'd turned into a makeshift casino, with like bingo & stuff. Altogether an awesome & unique experience as I recall it.


Speaking of Mays, I once met John Roseboro, in an equally unique set of circumstances. Of course, I was a Dodger fan, having grown up in LA during the '60s. So when I was doing a session in like 1988 with this singer who used to work as a BG vocalist for Motown, he said "C'mon. I'm gonna take you somewhere." We drove down into South Central neighborhood.. not exactly a welcome place for a stone whitey like me, at the time. LoL. But he wouldn't tell me where we were going. Stopped at this modest little house down there, and the next thing I knew, we were knocking on John Roseboro's door. I was awestruck, to put it lightly. He answered the door himself! Then we went in & it was just like, I dunno, like a normal dude, you know. After we chatted a bit, we went into the den and there was a keyboard set up. Me & my singer friend played a tune.. LoL .. but I was still just staring at John, you know. Weirdest damn thing. We finished the tune, and John said "Sounds nice.".. and that was that. We chatted a little more & then left. I was stunned like for weeks after. LoL

Yep...he was incredible as a Little Leaguer...plus he was a year older than me. He blanked our LL team and I think his team won State LL title that year. Later, we went to the same High School and I didn't hang with him but pretty much everyone knows everyone. They also won State AA basketball title with him as a Senior (my Junior year). He also was tutored quite a bit by Dave McNally (another Billings native!)

No, he's just always been my favorite player of all time. He was slightly before my time, but I loved the fact he was a 5 tool player and his baseball card was always in high demand.

Yep...born and raised in Billings. I was living here in 1978 when you breezed through...I would imagine the place your thinking of was the Shrine Auditorium....just several blocks from my home where I grew up. Interestingly, after 25 years away (mostly in Houston), I am now back in Billings where I watch our Mustangs still battle in Rookie Ball as a Reds farm team. The town has probably just about doubled in size since 1978, but still pretty small overall. Just right for me though.

Great story! The closest I can come is when I lived in Houston, I used to run Gap (retail) stores. One night, I was closing for my team (working till 10pm) and it was a Monday night. Very slow. Suddenly, in comes Terry Collins (who had JUST been let go by the Astros). He was shopping with his wife. I told him I felt he got the shaft and wished him well going forward. He seemed very appreciative and was super friendly. I also worked in a mall that was the most popular one in Houston (for Gap) and because of that athletes of visiting teams were always in our store...the most famous baseball version I met was Tony Larussa and Ozzie Smith (his final year playing) and the rest of the Cardinals. It was always fun meeting famous folks like that.

Probably Jeff Ballard is the equivalent of Bielefeld

Okay, I guess only Germans understand this
