He is the former pitcher of Athens Tigers of GBL (Greek Baseball League) who
had to leave baseball because of his inability to bend the arm fully while
pitching because of a deformity in his pitching hand. Accused of bowling by
the followers of TBL (Turkish Baseball League) during the final game of the
Mediterranean Series between Athens and Ankara, he underwent a series of
tests at the University of Helsinki which proved conclusively that he did
not bowl. However, hounded mercilessly by the Turkish fans whenever his
Athens team toured Turkey, he decided to retire from Baseball and now is
living in Australia as a fully paid defender of all falsely accused athletes
and a champion bagpipe player.
