  • Jimmy Stewart and Champ Summers, former Reds players, pass away

    Stewart:

    CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Jimmy Stewart, the former Austin Peay baseball great who was a member of the university’s first athletic Hall of Fame class, and enjoyed a 10-year major league baseball career, died Saturday in Tampa, Fla.

    A former Govs third baseman/shortstop, Steward was inducted into the APSU Athletics Hall of Fame in 1978-79 along with George Fisher, Halbert Harvill, Dick Hays, Tom Morgan, Stella Schupp and broadcaster Earl Walton a year after Dave Aaron was the lone inductee when the Hall of Fame was initiated in 1977-78.

    Summers:

    John “Champ” Summers, a retired 10-year Major League Baseball player, arrived in Ocala 13 years ago for a very specific reason.

    “My husband wanted to live on a golf course, to get up in the morning and go play golf,” said Joy Summers, his wife of 27 years.

    Champ Summers, 66, died Thursday after a long battle with kidney cancer. He had lived at Spruce Creek Preserve since 1999, when he and his wife moved from La Jolla, Calif.
