BJ newsroom retiree Tom Moore and advertising makeup retiree Mike Williams are enjoying Florida sunshine and watching old guys play baseball in former BJ sports editor Tom Giffen’s 27th annual Roy Hobbs World Baseball Series in Fort Myers, Florida.

back up Tom Giffen
For several years, Giffen ran Roy Hobbs Baseball out of his basement and continued to work at the Beacon Journal. In the mid-1990s, as the organization brought in more and more teams, Giffen resigned from the BJ to work full-time at his business.
Roy Hobbs is the fictional hero of Bernard Malamud's novel, “The Natural,” and the movie starring Robert Redford as Hobbs.
For Tom Moore and Mike Williams, the fun will end Monday night when they fly back to Ohio.
