Former Reds player in plane crash?
According to the online edition of The Morning Sentinel, a man by the name of Paul Householder was a passenger in a small plane that went down Kennebec River Tuesday afternoon. Both Householder and the pilot Ray Ayer were uninjured in the crash.
Is this the same Paul Householder that played for the Cincinnati Reds in the 1980s?
The article uses two different first names for Householder, first Paul in the title, and later Peter in the body of the article. I believe the second name to be in error. The writer identifies Householder as 54 years old from Delray Beach, Florida. The former ballplayer is 54, and according to Sports Card Forum he lived in Delray Beach in early 2007. Thus, I do believe this is the former Reds outfielder.
I am glad that he was unhurt and hope there are no future health repercussions from this accident.
