Hail To The Chief – Part #2

Gene Locklear first HR ball

In Part #2 of our interview, we talked with Gene about several different topics, and rather than type them out, we decided to let Gene’s words speak for themselves, so here we go…

First, Gene shares with us what he considers to the most memorable moment in his professional baseball career.

In this segment, Gene discusses his views on how money has changed the game and the players’ attitudes.

Finally, this is the part that truly broke our hearts. We have often wondered why there aren’t more Padres alumni at our games or at our special events. Gene tells his story of the last time he attended an alumni event and why he no longer goes to the ballpark.

Next week, in Part #3, Gene will react to comments from some of his former teammates and answer questions that they posed.
