Thoughts Regarding Jim “Mudcat” Grant

August 10, 2019

Jim “Mudcat” Grant had a really nice playing career, which included one great season that in 1965 when he compiled a (21-7) regular season record and won 2 games for his Twins in the World Series.

In game 6, Grant also hit a three run home run, just the second hit by an American League pitcher. (Jim Bagby of the 1920 Cleveland Indians hit the first, in fact the first by a pitcher in either league. Another “J.B.” Joe Blanton of the ’08 Philadelphia Phillies, hit the last to date).

“Mudcat” is such a classy, personable individual, who is, among other talents, quite a singer.
