Best Answer

Yes but only for a double-header in the spring following the Basketball run to the NCAA championship game. He played first base and around 2,500 fans showed up (usual crowd more like 200). There is a Baseball card with him in a Sycamore uniform (I have one sealed if I can find it) . He got at least one hit in the DH and played several innings. I am thinking it was vs. Ball State, but not sure about that?
