Lenny Lindborg was 18 and just out of high school in 1954 when he signed a baseball contract with the Pittsburgh Pirates. He also had played football and basketball at Compton High, but baseball was his first love. He didn't start playing tennis until he was 30, and then really didn't take it seriously until almost 10 years later. Lindborg didn't make it to the major leagues in baseball, much less stick around very long with the Hollywood Stars of the Pacific Coast League.
