Dave Righetti On Former Umpire Steve Palermo: “I Was Real Proud To Be A Friend Of His”

Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Baseball Podcast

Updated 3 times a  week on TheSportsVirus.com!

Giants pitching coach Dave Righetti joined us during the last home stand to talk about the passing of former umpire Steve Palermo, who was behind the plate when Rags threw his no-hitter for the Yankees in 1983 against the Red Sox.

Righetti gave The Sports Virus his thoughts about Palermo: …“To see him fight, fight, fight, fight (after he was shot and paralyzed) all his might to get back on his feet, get back in the game and do all of the different things he did in this game, I was real proud to be a friend of his… I’m going to miss the thought that he’s out there somewhere. I’ll always remember him with a lot of fondness.”
