Here's his latest mailing address.

170 N. Ocean Blvd. Apt 307

Palm Beach, FL 33480

If you're planning to request an autograph, I've heard that he charges $5 to sign a card.

Hey everyone... My name is Allan Carlisle and Johnny Groth is my grandfather... He is still alive and doing very well, living in Palm Beach, Florida.  He had 11 children, one of which is my mother, Ginger Groth.  We recently took a trip to Chicago, and visited the Latin School where he attended high school.  They have set up a really nice exhibit there, highlighting his career.

He was my father's favorite baseball player. How could i get an autographed ball from him, or get in touch with him?

1980-present. Please note I really don't know much about Tiger Stadium seats. Most of what I'm able to find out about them I find by doing searches on I am also unable to appraise collectibles such as autographed balls or cards.
