Hes one of those guys teammates joked around with, Royals Hall of Famer Frank White said. He was a real good teammate. He was a lefty, had a screwball.
Steve is from KC, played in the B.J. (Ban Johnson) League. He was really excited when he came to Kansas City to play. He was part of our 77 team. He was real effective.
