Teammate on 1978 Lynchburg Mets. Good pitcher. Live fastball. We won the Carolina championship. Nice guy.

I worked as an usher in Smith-Willes Stadium in Jackson, Miss from 79-82. I got to know Paul a little bit. He talked with that thick Boston accent. He used to always complain how hot it was in Jackson after running sprints in the outfield. Paul was a fastball pitcher who, little by little, was losing his zip, so the Mets traded him. I lost track of him for a while, but he came back into town with the Amarillo Padres in 1982 I believe. Paul was just a shell of himself at this time, nibbling at the corners with a high school fastball. Well he fell behind in the count to Daryl Strawberry and I will never forget the momentous blast Straw hit off him. The ball was still going up as it went into the trees in right center. Paul looked stunned. The manager came out and took the ball from him. I never saw him again.

I got to know Paul in Wausau, Wisconsin in 1977. I would always see him after games at the local watering hole, The Kings Knight. Paul was always blaming everyone for holding him back. He would drink beer after beer, getting louder and louder, about how he threw the hardest on the team and he was "going to the show." He would always say that: "I'm goin to the show!" In reality, Paul was a "thrower" not a pitcher. I would try and tell Paul that pitching is about changing speeds and working the ball in and out, but he would not hear of it, he would just stare out into the thumping strobe light and ramble, "I'm going to the show, I'm going to the show!!!" I hope Paul is doing okay.

I roomed with Paul in Jackson in 1979. I don't know what this Andrew is talking about. The Paul I knew, and still talk to, threw in the low to mid 90's. I got released in 80 and later heard that Paul had hurt his rotator cuff. I would've bet that had he not gotten hurt, Paul would've pitched in the bigs.
