1993 Studio John Franco

Hobbies are bowling and golf: More sports hobbies.
Favorite sports announcer is Bob Murphy: Murphy was the Mets radio broadcaster for over 40 years.
Favorite player as a kid was Tug McGraw: Franco wore McGraw’s #45 with the Mets. McGraw was the surprise guest on John Franco Day in 1999.
Might have been a policeman if he hadn’t been an athlete: Franco lost friends who were police and firefighters on 9/11, and was outspoken in his support of the NYPD.
Pet peeve is lack of respect: If you aren’t being respected, John, it’s because you haven’t earned it.
Where he is now: Founder of the Borough Cup youth baseball tournament.
