1993 Studio Robby Thompson

Hobbies are fishing, tennis, golf and water sports: Guy likes being outdoors.

Favorite sports announcer is Chris Berman: Thompson did not get a nickname from Berman.

Favorite player as a kid was Pete Rose: In high school Thompson grew his hair shaggy in emulation of Rose.

Might have been an educator if he hadn’t been an athlete: Thompson did not go into education after his baseball career.

Pet peeve is slow traffic in the fast lane: Lots of lead-footed drivers in this set.

Where he is now: As of 2016 he was a Special Assistant to the Indians GM. Not clear if he is still in the role.

  1. I had him confused with the Yankees coach Rob Thomson. Thought they were the same guy at first, because I heard the name on TV and thought of the former 2nd baseman. Didn't see Thomson's name spelled because the Yanks dont have names on their jerseys.
