I had the good fortune of knowing Jimmy many years ago when we played baseball together as kids. It took a tough guy to play Catcher and he handled it well. Even though the decades have passed and I hadn’t seen him in a long time, he was one of those special guys that I never forgot. God bless the family during this time.
