I never knew that, I just looked him up on wikipedia and it also says his great nephew is currently part of the Allman Brothers group. Anyways RIP to Virgil Trucks. He was a great pitcher who does deserve more recognition for the Hall of Fame. He was the last guy who was alive who beat the Cubs in a World Series too.
