Joseph Jenks was one of the first governors of Rhode Island. He died in 1749 at age 91 and was buried in Pawtucket.
So what, right? Well, he got disinterred for some reason about a hundred years later. It was then reported that JJ was seven foot two inches tall. No wonder he got elected governor! God, he must have been a freaking giant back then!
How come I never knew about this?
At any rate, it's over. No more baseball. AFL doesn't count. I'm going to move to Venezuela and get a job in winter league ball.
