Catch number 2 of 162 // Tim Gradoville
Catch number 2 out of 162 was with former Philadelphia Phillies bullpen catcher and all-around good guy Mr. Tim Gradoville!
Tim was drafted by the Phillies in 2002 and worked all the way up to the big league club. I asked him if he remembered his best game as a pro and he answered, “I definitely remember my worst! I went 0-for-5 with 4 strikeouts and the 5th at bat was a weak dribbler that went 15 feet from home plate!”
Favorite player as a kid? Tim answered instantly. “Ozzie Smith. The Wizard of Oz!” A lot of St. Louis Cardinals love with these first two games of catch.
Great throwing with you, Tim.
