KKLA radio personality Frank Pastore injured in 210 Freeway motorcycle crash

Professional baseball pitcher turned Christian radio personality Frank Pastore remained in critical condition Tuesday after he was injured when a car collided with his motorcycle on the 210 Freeway Monday night.

Pastore, who sustained head trauma, was flown by helicopter to Los Angeles County USC Medical Center. He remained in critical condition Tuesday in the intensive care unit, according to hospital spokeswoman Rosa Saca.

“I just hope everyone is praying for him. This is a shock to all of us,” Pastore’s mother-in-law said. “He’s a very good person. A Christian person. At this time, it’s very hard. He’s loved by everyone.”

...Pastore was a pitcher for the Cincinnati Reds from 1979 until 1985 and for the Minnesota Twins in 1986, according to his bio on Major League Baseball’s website. He is an Alhambra native and was a student at Damien High School in La Verne. He hosts “The Frank Pastore Show” at 99.5 KKLA, a Christian radio station based in Los Angeles.

Yikes! Best wishes for his recovery. I just happened across his show a week or two ago while flipping channels on the way home from work. Didn't realize it was the Christian station for a while - he was engaging, thoughtful, curious, and relaxed while discussing something like whether to let your kids play football. He integrated the religious perspective organically and discussed intelligently how it contributed to the decision making process. A real credit to his religion; they could use more like him.

Just like Joe Louis was a credit to his race?

I'll be driving through that part of the 210 on the way to and from dinner tomorrow. Pastore was a credit to his 1980 rotation.

Trying again with coding...

Frank Pastore also held a record for 21 years until it went down in 2008.
