When Life Threw This Former Houston Astro a Curve, He Came Back Swinging
How many of your co-workers have an entry at Baseball-Reference.com? Jeff Heathcock does. He pitched 158 innings and had 18 decisions, winning nine, for the Houston Astros between 1983 and 1988, and also spent all or parts of 10 seasons in minor league baseball.
Unlike most people who go straight from college to a career, he says, “I got to put off working in the real world for 10 years. It was a blast.”
