Tommy Burkett of Marymount called his parents at 2:00 AM in 1991 to inform them he would spend the night at a friend’s house but would return by noon to join his family for poetry readings at home.

Burkett was known for his consistent, reliable play on the field and his outgoing, confident nature that won over fans. Hecklers would often use this connection between himself and Wheeling native Jack Glasscock as a means to ridicule Burkett.
Burkett returned to the minors in 1902 and led the New England League with a.344 average, but his batting declined quickly after that; by 1904, he finished only second with a mere average of.306.

Achievement and Honors
Burkett is recognized by the Western New York American Chemical Society as being an outstanding high school science teacher, thanks to her innovative classroom methods which enable her students to meet academic benchmarks while remaining up-to-date with industry advances.
Burkett was a fearless hitter despite his diminutive stature. Once leading the league in batting average and bunting skills, he relied more on finesse than brute strength for success – often taking shots at pitches others would shirk away from, becoming one of the greatest singles hitters of his era and one of its most durable players.
Tom Burkett was an enthusiastic collector of antique cars. In addition, he regularly attended model car shows across the East Coast. Additionally, he had one son and daughter as well as two grandchildren; all were members of Springfield Bible Church or Calvary Temple Christian Center.
On the night before Tommy died, he attended a party about seven miles from home with friends and promised them that he would come home late as promised. When it turned out he never did return as promised.
The Drug Enforcement Agency has denied any connection between Thomas’ death and Fairfax County police’s assessment that it was intentional, while Beth and Tom continue their search for answers – spending nearly $30,000 on legal fees and investigators before having his body dug up for another autopsy examination.
Burkett was a founding member of Crown Financial Ministries and author of two books. Additionally, he maintains an active speaking and teaching schedule. Together with his wife Beth, Burkett established this organization with the mission to teach biblical financial principles to 30 million people around the globe.
Burkett asserted that CBS had an obligation to authenticate the memos, and felt misled by producer Mapes and his assistant. However, an independent panel concluded that neither Mapes or his assistant had any prior experience in document or handwriting analysis or the mechanics involved with authenticating documents.
Filings with the SEC indicate that Marvin D Burkett owns three stocks worth more than $271 Million including Intermolecular Inc and Entegris Inc. His holdings total a whopping total of three.
