Signing Results – Charlie Hough – MUST READ!!!
As I continue to try to honor and prolong the memory of the original Florida Marlins, it does not get much better than this!!
Way back in 1993, Charlie Hough was the starting pitcher for the first game in the team’s history.
A veteran of the sport, who had seen three decades of major league activity, Hough kicked off the inaugural season for ‘The Fish’ on April 5, 1993.
And now, I have a very nice and special signed baseball to commemorate that historic event in Marlins team history.
Have a look:
When one of my buddies from an autographing website that I frequent was taking orders for a signing with Hough, Charlie was involved because he was one of the three pitchers (he was number three) to give up the three home runs to Reggie Jackson in the 1977 World Series.
And as historic as that amazing event was, I choose to remember Mr. Hough as the Opening Day pitcher during the Marlins’ first game instead.
Thank you for your help Chris. And ‘Thank You’ Mr. Hough!!!
