Big Red Sports Talk Interviews Skip Griparis AKA Monte the Color Analyst from Major League
With the Cleveland Indians in the World Series right now, the entire city is happily reminiscing about Major League, the 1989 cult classic that saw the fictional Indians win an American League pennant. For that reason, sports director Alex Kaufman decided to reach out to one of the movie's most memorable characters.
Skip Griparis is a comedian, impressionist, and musician from Illinois, but he is also known for his only movie role, as Monte in Major League and Major League II. Monte is the color commentator who was always short on words. While Griparis enjoys being known for the role, he also has plenty of stories and memories as a touring musician and successful impressionist. Griparis shared plenty of stories during the interview, which you can listen to below.
