Tom Field

Tom Field was an original member of the Air Aces, who dominated the Guts scene during the mid 1970’s. Following a stellar career with the Air Aces, he later proved his worth with California’s Foothill Flyers and with Motor City. Tom’s teams won 2 IFTs, 2 GPA World Championships, and 1 Canadian Open. He throws an accurate, hard-hitting backhand which he rarely dumps, and has excellent catching skills, both as an initial impact bagger and expert bobbler. His “proof” is his ability to gel with his teammates, whoever they might be. Tom wrote articles for the GPA Newsletter, including one that broke down the elements of his shot for all to see, and another that described his teams’ practice regimen. Field was elected to the USGPA Board of Directors in 2007.
