- While I didn't know Woodford, I have fond memories of the Baugher family-mostly because of the many baseball players. I remember, as a kid, watching his dad, Ed, and Uncle Woody pitching in the Seehorn-Fall Creek area. Later, I played with other uncles, Pinkie and Warren.
and enjoyed their friendship. My condolences and best wishes to members of this special family.
