Thomas Arthur Giordano was a Major League Baseball player for the Philadelphia Athletics ( 1953 ). Tommy was not nicknamed "T-Bone" because of his tall (6") and skinny (175 lbs) frame, but did share with us how it started, saying, "I hit a couple of home runs one day. Someone made the statement, 'Hey, where did you get all that power? What did you do?' I told 'em, 'Before every game, my dad fixes me a big T-bone steak.' That's where it all started."

Did you know that after Tommy Giordano hung up his playing cleats, he scouted for the Philadelphia Athletics , Cincinnati Reds , Cleveland Indians , Milwaukee Brewers and Baltimore Orioles (credited for the drafting of Cal Ripken, Jr. and Manny Ramirez ) - a job he did until he passed away in 2019? Did you know he won the 2007 Scout of the Year Award ?
