We were fortunate enough to have had our fathers (Wayne and Orville) work together and become good friends. For many years there was an annual gathering of the Corbin Brothers staff at Salisbury’s in Findlay. It was all family. Of course, family went out the door when baseball started, Arlington and Mt. Blanchard, ya know. Greg shared with us Bub’s pitching prowess as a youngster. Said Bub was a hard thrower and just wild enough to keep your feet happy. What fond memories! Our dads were always involved in the games too. Bub and the whole Frantz family has a place in our hearts. You have our deepest sympathy in Bub’s passing.
