I just saw a story in this month's Motor City Sports magazine that says he's playing minor league baseball!
Is this for real?
Anybody else see the story?

I just heard Barry interviewed by Mitch Albom last week. He is sponsoring an auction to raise funds for the South Central Kansas Boys & Girls Clubs; that's why he was being interviewed...lots of great sports memorabilia available there. Then he mentioned that he was becoming a dad for the 4th time the next day. Nothing was said about any minor league baseball. In fact, Barry was talking about how much time he enjoys spending with his family (his oldest son is 13; the youngest just born). Based on what Barry said, I doubt the story is true.

The magazine story is an exclusive.
Maybe he couldn't talk about it with Albom.
But the cat's out of the bag now.
I can't find a link to it on the MCS Web site, but it's in the magazine. It's pretty farfetched, but the writer (Eddie Gilmour) certainly is convincing.

Is it the April Fool's issue?

I read that article in MCS. What a scoop that was. I like the part where Pudge calls him "Pudge II". That part was especially believable.

I know barry personally, and well yes he is playing minor league ball, Hes my neighbor, and we chatted over it while eating a slew of nutty bars, which we both walked down to the corner store to buy together........ Then quiet as its kept we watched perfect strangers together on a lil mini T.V. and had a hoot in our tom-foolery.
