1993 Studio Craig Shipley

Hobby is weight lifting: Shipley and Padres teammate Ken Caminiti were early users of creatine.

Favorite sports announcer is Mel Allen: As an Australian, Shipley may have been familiar with Allen from This Week in Baseball, but he also may have chosen Allen as both were alumni of the University of Alabama.

Favorite player as a kid was Pete Rose: Rose presumably had great international appeal.

Might have been a coach if he hadn’t been an athlete: Shipley coached in Australia during and after his career.

Pet peeve is Florida drivers: Spring training must have been a frustrating time for Shipley.

Where he is now: Special Assistant to the General Manager for the Diamondbacks.
