Goodbye To Pitcher John “Mitty” Gray

Posted May 29th, 2014 by Tom Owens and filed in John Gray, Johnny Gray, Philadelphia Athletics, Philadelphia Phillies

One of baseball history’s losses in May was the death of John Gray at age 87. Despite his short career, Gray is in a select group: men who played for two different Philadelphia franchises (Athletics and Phillies).

Back in 2010, Gray wrote me about his long-forgotten nickname.
Statistics tell only one story. Baseball is nothing without its character.
Or, characters!
If they played baseball, chances are they have stories to tell.
You’ll never know if you never ask.
