“Mudcat” And Friends Hit The Links For Charity Today

WNBF News / Roger Neel Photol

Former big league pitcher Jim “Mudcat” Grant and three dozen other celebrities are teeing it up for four local charities in the Twelfth Annual Jim “Mudcat” Grant All-Star Golf Tournament at The Links At Hiawatha Landing today.  Security Mutual Life is the host for the event.

“Mudcat” Grant was a big league pitcher from 1958-1971.  He won 21 games for the Minnesota Twins in 1965 and led them to the World Series.  He also won a pair of games in that World Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers.  His contacts from professional baseball and other sports have enabled him to assemble quite a lineup of celebrity golfers.

Joining Grant are fellow members of the “Black Aces” (African-American pitchers who have won 20 or more games in the big leagues) : Mike Norris, Ferguson Jenkins, J.R. Richard,  Al Downing and Vida Blue.  In addition former New York Yankees Steve Kraly and Cliff Johnson are playing along with New York Jets Center John Schmitt and Binghamton University Men’s Basketball Coach Tom Dempsey.

Proceeds from today’s All-Star Golf Tournament are divided among the Broome County Urban League, Catholic Charities, CHOW and the Boys and Girls Club of Binghamton.
