    He was a professional baseball player with Detroit Tigers and he became JW in the 80's. I was wondering what is his status in the org?

    Originally with the White Sox's and then became a Tiger.....sorry Sox's fan here!

    As for his status in the org. I would have no clue!

    Lou Whitaker was also a JW- converted by Lemon. Alan Trammel studied but never came in.

  • Confession

    Here's an article that's about five years old. It definitely suggests he strongly believes it's "The Truth."

    Yeah confession your righthe still is a Dub. Him and lou were my favorite players because of their dub status (thankgod they were actually good)

    Some dude came on here a few months ago w/ a story quite similar to Lou Whitaker's. It caused quite a stir w/ some of the posters. Here is the thread.

    I met him at the Janesville Wisconsin assembly hall back in the late 70's when he just was starting to study.

    Knowing who he was made it kind of un-nerving to actually meet him ( being a teenager myself at the time.)

    If you notice in the article it refers to his wife " GIGI ". His wife's name when they were associated with the cong in Troy Mich. was " Valerie ". She claimed to be of the annointed. So, something must have happened to Valerie for them to be divorced. ????

    He was in Florida for a while... my son (who is now 27) attended his baseball camp. I think my son was about 10 or 11 at the time.
