Jack Graney, the only major league player ever born in St. Thomas, Ont., will be added to the city’s Wall of Fame in a ceremony at the Timken Centre on Monday, July 14 at 2 p.m. E.T.
Graney, who passed away in 1978, will be honoured posthumously for his 14-year big league playing career and his more than two decades as a broadcaster with the Cleveland Indians. His daughter, Margot Graney Mudd, and granddaughter, Perry Mudd Smith, who reside in Florida, will be present at the ceremony.
The diamond legend will become the fourth person to be honoured on the St. Thomas Wall of Fame, joining community booster Al Riddell, standout fastball player Rick McCaw and big screen star Rachel McAdams.
