Jim "Long Ball" Lonborg No DH Fan

Posted November 24th, 2010 by Tom Owens and filed in designated hitter, Jim Lonborg, Ron Taylor
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.”
