What’s Rob Reading?

Jophery Brown (Trading Card DB)“The pitcher who became a legendary Hollywood stuntman: The amazing life of Jophery Brown”
By Matt Monagan,

“There Jophery Brown was, on the mound for his big league debut with the Chicago Cubs. A place little kids dream of being from the first time they learn about the game of baseball. The Cubs lost, 5-1, but — after an already fairly successful Minor League stint — that game seemed like it could’ve been the start of a budding Major League career for Brown. Brown, who only really played baseball because his dad loved it, was being pulled in a totally new direction. A torn rotator cuff and some advice from a loved one helped him make his ultimate decision and lead him to a life that, well, a totally different set of kids might dream about.”
