Former big league pitcher Jim “Mudcat” Grant heads up tomorrow’s Twelfth Annual Jim “Mudcat” Grant All-Star Golf Tournament at The Links at Hiawatha Landing.  Hosted by Security Mutual Life the annual event benefits four local charities including:  CHOW, Broome County Urban League, Boys and Girls Club of Binghamton and Catholic Charities of Broome County.

Grant had his best season with the Minnesota Twins in 1965 when he went 21-7 and led the Twins to the World Series.  He coined the term “Black Aces” for those African-American pitchers who have won 20 or more games for a big league team.  Only 15, including himself, have accomplished that feat.  Other “Black Aces” playing in tomorrow’s tournament include: Mike Norris, Fergie Jenkins, Vida Blue and J.R. Richard.

Security Mutual Life hosts the golf tournament.  For a preview of tomorrow’s event tune-in to WNBF First News with Roger Neel at 8:35 when “Mudcat”  and friends will visit before they head to the golf course.
