The article features baseball player Frank Tanana, who is considered to be among the most diligent, best conditioned and fiercely competitive by his manager and coaches. He spent his high school at the Detroit Catholic Central where he was all-state for two years in basketball. He was drafted by the California Angels in 1971 but it was only during midway through spring training in 1972 where he pitched, winning seven and losing two for the Angels. He thinks of adapting to broadcasting if his career suddenly ends.
