He started playing baseball at age 14 in Morehead, KY in 1918. Relocated to Akron in 1920, “Rube” soon established himself as an outstanding second baseman for Evans A.C. and Akron-Wooster Coach Lines. Beginning in 1930, because of his leadership qualities, Rube became a player/manager for Jackrabbit Bus Lines, Akron Pure Milk, Goodrich Local #5 (1941 A Champs), Moore Wrestlers, and Snyder Lumber. Rube retired as player/manager in 1947, but remained active on the diamond as an umpire for five more years. Terry, more than anything, is extremely proud of the lifetime friends he has accumulated during his 32 years on the baseball fields.
