Here's what Tom "Toxic" Hume stands for:

This photo appears to have been taken at a municipal park
Obsessed with keeping the baseball warm at all times
Maroon: Good description for the color of the uniform and the man himself

Hard to tell whether that's stubble, shadow or dirt under his chin
Upturned nose resembles a pig's
Metric ton of glass on his face
Electric stuff       not his fastball, the gear for his ham radio hobby
