Larry went to his first games in 1960, a doubleheader at Wrigley Field on 1953 when the Cubs and Giants split a pair of 5-3 games. One of the Giants pitchers in the second game was Sherman Jones, whom Larry later met at a community center in Kansas City. Larry was a Vista volunteer, working to set up an alternative school, and Jones was the athletic director for the school. Jones showed Larry his baseball card, and Larry later learned that Topps had made a mistake and used a different players picture on the card.
Larry has been a Twins fan since the team came to Minnesota and collects Twins team set baseball cards. He is a regular at Twinsfest and has been going to spring training for eight years.
He is an independent living skills specialist with the Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute and has been married to Doreen since 2015, although they first met 42 years ago.
Larry shares his August 15 birthday with Jarrod Dyson, Oliver Perez, Scott Brosius, Duffy Dyer, Eric Fox, Tom Kelly, Elmer Foster, Doggie Millers, Billy Conigliaro, Joe Lis, Joey Jay, Barney Schultz, Charles Comiskey, Jim Lange, Gene Upshaw, Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lawrence, Kerri Walsh Jennings, Mike Connors, Tall Rhonda Bates, Rose Marie, Huntz Hall, Ethel Barrymore, Lillian Carter, Sir Walter Scott, Napoleon Bonaparte, Julia Child, and Phyllis Schlafly.
Craig Shuman is from the New York/New Jersey area, has been a Mets fan for as long as he can remember, and now lives in St. Louis Park, Minnesota.
Craig worked for 30 years as an operations manager at various companies and decided to go back to school. He is close to completing a masters degree in geospatial information systems (GIS). It is similar to business analytics, he says, only with maps. Craig is hoping to use GIS for sports analytics and would like to hear from any other GIS folks out there.
Craig attended the game in which Roberto Clemente got his 3,000th hit.
Craig shares his September 29 birthday with Dave Orr, Mike McCormick, Hal Trosky, Jack Fournier, Warren Cromartie, Steve Busby, Rich Reese, Harry Steinfeldt, Paul Giel, Don Wheeler, Gene Autry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Madeline Kahn, Enrico Fermi, Gwen Ifill, Erika Eleniak, and Bum Phillips.
