Joe Stroop, retired, spent 55 years as a professional communicator, beginning at age 15 when he took an after-school job as a DJ at the local radio station (best job ever). He earned a degree in journalism and worked at Dallas-Fort Worth radio/TV stations covering local news and sports, including the Texas Rangers’ first opening day. He joined the Associated Press, covering every Rangers home game for several seasons, including the tumultuous Doug Rader era, and was awarded that Holiest of Grails, a BBWAA membership card. Somehow, he was enticed to join the public relations department of a Fort Worth-based airline, later managed his own PR firm, and retired as a regional PR manager for a San Francisco-based national bank. He has continued to write about baseball, contributing “throwback” articles for a Rangers website and SABR projects. Today, he, his gorgeous wife and two brilliant, successful children are all DFW residents.
