Q and A with Johnny Goryl

Probably the most fascinating person in the entire Cleveland Indians organization to talk to is Johnny Goryl. He is not a Hall of Famer and never was an All Star. He only played in 276 Major League games over six seasons and was just a career .225 hitter. But Goryl played in an era that had the likes of Mickey Mantle, Ernie Banks, Hank Aaron, Sandy Koufax and so many other stars...

If baseball were to have a Jewish Mt. Rushmore certainly the two heads everyone would expect to be on there would be Sandy Koufax and Hank Greenberg. Both Koufax and Greenberg changed the face of baseball while instilling in Jews pride and ground to stand on as athletes. Koufax, who I would argue was the greatest pitcher ever, leads the way and Greenberg, whose numbers were incredible...
