Retired Major League Left Handed Pitcher: Doug played professional baseball for fifteen years, and had a nine year major league career. Doug pitched in the MLB for the Cardinals, Giants, Cubs, Devil Rays, Tigers, Blue Jays, and Tigers. He also pitched one year on Japan for the Hanshin Tigers. Doug now retired lives in Maryland and instructs youth baseball. On his web site, he says, "I am from the old school and a firm believer in work ethic and commitment. If you desire to be your very best, I invite you to my facility and watch how little rascals become fine young men."
This weekend, Joshua is playing in the Cal Ripken/Babe Ruth 12U State Tournament in La Plata, Maryand. Doug was the special guest speaker at the opening ceremony held last night. I enjoyed speaking to him last night and today at the baseball complex.
