Jim “Long Ball” Lonborg No DH Fan

Authentic Facsimile!

Pitcher Jim Lonborg was no slouch at bat.

He connected for105 hits and three home runs in his career. A 1974 bases-clearing blast versus the Expos at Parc Jarry highlighted his slugging potential. Lonborg wrote:

Montreal Grand Slam was most memorable. Off Ron Taylor, almost ran by man on first.

Not a big fan of DH.

Love the challenge of substitution necessary with pitchers hitting.

Have a great day,
Jim Lonborg”

Thanks for all the great days, and great memories, “Lonnie.”
