3/20/12-Something Historical–John Shelby 2001-Photography by Jon SooHoo/Los Angeles Dodgers

One of my favorite people in baseball will hopefully be coming to Camelback today with the Milwaukee Brewers. Brewer’s Coach John “T-Bone” Shelby is one of nicest men in baseball and I have known him since our 1988 World Championship team.  In return for his friendship I gave him the curse of the internet and Itunes. When he was coaching with us a few years ago, I not only got him to get an Apple laptop, I showed him how he could spend endless hours in the hotel searching his favorite gospel singers on Itunes. I am sure I have caused him a lot of sleepless nights on the road because instead of going to bed right after the night games like he used to, he started buying music on Itunes which I am sure made it to his Ipod. I will find out if he has moved on to the Ipad since. Here he poses with one of his sons in 2001 at PNC in Pittsburgh in 2001.

If you know T-Bone, you can always count on hearing him scream out his favorite word throughout the season at both home and road games…..”BRUTAL!”  Listen the next time the Brewers are in town.     © Jon SooHoo/Los Angeles Dodgers
