June 18, 2019 George Toma...The Sultan of Sod

George Toma
wasn't a ballplayer but someone who is just as important...his nickname says it all, "The Sultan of Sod"...he was the famous groundskeeper in Kansas City, first with the Kansas City Athletics and then with the Kansas City Royals. He prepared the field for the first Super Bowl in 1967 and has worked every one since. He is also in a lot of Halls of Fame, check out his business card.
         I have always been sending TTMs to players only but when I saw someone on SCN receive a success from Mr Toma, I checked to see if I had any images of Mr Toma and sure enough I had an image of him with the famous ball rabbit at Municipal Stadium in Kansas City.
