View Full Version : Koosman to the Bastille

Former Sox hurler and 1969 Miracle Met World Series hero Jerry Koosman has been senteced to six months in prison for tax evasion. Apparently, Jerry took a three year hiatus from paying federal taxes.

I'm sure he's not headed to some high security lockup but, nonetheless, the prospect of six months in the slammer for a man of 66 must be chilling.

Well, they may call it the slammer where he is going, but I would guess it will be more of a "work camp" type setting - a place that might not even have any bars. I doubt he's a flight risk.

I remember Koos when I first starting watching the Sox as a kid and he was at the end of his career. Hopefully, he can move past this and his personal life moves into a positive direction from here on out.

Here's his WSI interview:
