The video highlights Johnny Grubb, born in Richmond, Virginia and attended Meadowbrook High School. After graduation, Grubb enrolled at Manatee Junior College. After his sophomore year, Grubb was drafted by the Cincinnati Reds in 1969, but decided instead to transfer to Florida State University, where he starred on the squad that compiled a 49-9 record and finished as runner-up for the NCAA Championship. Grubb signed with the Padres and made his major league debut on September 10, 1972. The following year, Grubb batted .311 with eight home runs in 113 games and was named to the Topps All-Star Rookie Team.
