Just stumbled upon this posting years later- I went to high school with Mike Buddie in Cleveland, Ohio. Amazing athlete in any sport that he tried- was state wrestling champion in high school; great football player; and of course fantastic baseball player who played 5 years or so in the majors. Mike also had a brother (Mark?) who was a good athlete too. FYI, Mike Buddie now works at Wake Forest University as an Assistant Athletic Director or something like that.
Hey, thanks for the update. Here's a link to his page at Wake Forest,http://www.wakeforestsports.com/genrel/buddie_mike00.html
