Lookout Doubles as a Pilot
By David Paschall, 'Chattanooga Times Free Press'
Chattanooga Lookouts outfielder Tommy Giles is a licensed commercial pilot, and during the offseason he flies his family’s twin-engine Piper Seneca throughout his home state of Florida. "My family plays a lot of golf, so we usually just fly to a bunch of places and play," Giles says. "The first week after every season is over, I get reacquainted with flight instructors because I haven’t flown in the last six months." Giles would like to be permitted to fly to league games during the baseball season, as it would allow trips to go faster than they do on the team’s bus.
