Baseball Career: I started working on that flawless motion of mine in 3rd grade - up at Waite Park in North East Minneapolis. After accelerating through the various levels, I prepared myself for high school and all the babes a star player is supposed to attract. Unfortunately, Dan Petuwitz was the stud and I was the B.P. pitcher and, hence, no babes came my way. (Editors note: In high school Joe had homeroom with at least a half dozen hotties for three straight years. What did he do during all that time he was locked in the same room with some serious tail? He played cards with the boys. What a putz!) Next came college, where I played for the College Of St. Thomas. I finally attracted the babes (that's where I met my wife). After college I started my amateur career with the inaugural J. Botten team. Since that 1976 team I have played with the South Side Merchants, Columbia Heights, Haleks, Moose Lodge, Druks and the Minneapolis Merchants. I have been in the 35 & over league since 1989, when the league's minimum age was 33. I was recruited by Mike Rohm the first year when the Saints and the Lakers were born from the Minnetonka Millers.
