Bobby, Jack Stroud and Scott Childress attended the University of Missouri in Columbia on baseball scholarships after leaving Highland.  Jack graduated from Mizzou and played with the Mets and Indians.  Bobby signed with the Carinals and played 10 years in AAA, with various organizations (Cardinals, White Sox, Braves, etc).  He served two years in the Army, one of which was in Viet Nam.  He was one of finest ballplayers to ever come out of Albuquerque.  He retired in 2009, but passed just short of being retired from one year.  He had three sons Cory, Travis and Dusty.  Travis and Dusty were exceptional players as well, but injuries cut their careers short.
