Leo: News, Notes, Major League Playoffs!
October means the Major League playoffs are underway, and once again there are former Clippers playing some serious roles. Clippers historian Joe Santry will tell you that a former Columbus player has participated in almost every World Series in history!
The most noticable former Clippers are obviously wearing pinstripes for Joe Girardi’s Yankees. Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, and Robinson Cano are all searching for yet another championship. I’ll compile a full list of former Clippers once the league championship series’ roll around…
