Yes Segura, Riordan and Gonzalez all had a small hand in Jimmy's development the reality is it was his mom and "two mom" grandmother who really made him who and what he was.

His grandfather on his moms side was a middleweight boxer and lifeguard and like the rest of that side of the family tough as nails. There is a great article from a 1978 Sports Illustrated feature on Jimbo that's pretty deep - I have a copy still but can't remember exactly the week - late Aug 78 I believe - for sure worth a look if you are interested in Jimbo.
