We Are Friendship Village: Gus Frank, resident Friendship Village Sunset Hills
Question: What was your favorite thing to do when you were younger?
Answer: “I played ball (baseball). I pitched in high school and we won the city (St. Louis) and state tournaments in 1958. I was a left-handed pitcher. I tore up my shoulder because I needed a strikeout pitch and I read a book by Carl Hubbell and learned how to throw a screwball. I have arthritis because I tore up the ligaments in my shoulder throwing that screwball, but I didn’t tell the coach because then he wouldn’t let me pitch and I just wanted to play.” – Gus Frank, resident Friendship Village Sunset Hills
