Greg Minton was born July 29, 1951 in Lubbock,
Texas. Nicknamed Moon Man for his practical jokes such as the
hijacking of the team bus and the flooding of a minor league
ballpark so he could leave Amarillo one day early at the end of the
season. Minton enjoyed a
16-year major league career, from 1975 to 1990, and was a member of
the 1982 National League All-Star Team. He played for the
California Angels and San Francisco Giants.
