Apparently Greg Swindell gives out $1 bills on Halloween
Oh, you got Butterfinger BB's from Mr. McGillicutty's house? Mr. Swindell gave me $1 and a Reggie Jackson rookie card.
Rays second baseman Will Rhymes tweeted that the former big league pitcher used to give out money and baseball cards to kids on Halloween. Pretty cool stuff. That was probably about 15 years ago, so if he's still doing it today, with inflation ... where do you live, Greg Swindell?!
One trick or treat memory.Went to Greg Swindell's house once, he gave every kid a baseball card and $1..... I was pumped.— Will Rhymes (@willrhymes) October 31, 2012
@cut4 my memory is short. But I remember giving my rookie cards out. They gave us lots if extras in spring training. Figured kids liked them— greg swindell (@GregSwindell) November 1, 2012
