Kiner’s Korner Revisited: Ed Kranepool

Fun fact: After their careers ended, both Kranepool and Cleon Jones worked with my grandfather. He was the foreman at a lithography factory and they were in sales, since I guess people are more likely to contract a lithographer that is represented by ballplayers. Kranepool came to my aunt’s wedding when I was real young and I got to wear his World Series ring. Pretty awesome.

  1. Ted,
    These are great! I don’t know if you are going to shoot new ones (it looks like these two were done in the same sitting), but if so, please get different chairs! Both of you look so uncomfortable leaning back like that. Ralph has no socks and you’re feet are barely touching the ground. Sorry, it’s the video guy in me coming out. Otherwise keep up the good work.

    • Thanks, Darryl. I’m not sure if we’ll shoot more or not — it depends on if we can find more original footage, to be honest. But I agree on the chairs thing.
