I ran into Pittman at Joe's one time and a friend asked him why he always had his hat off center a little bit. Johnny got a big smile and demonstrated for us as he adjusted his hat and said "I gotta lock it in". Seemed like a great guy with a great sense of humor. I also remember him coming in to a Bedlam game and fouling out in, what seemed like, a matter of a few minutes, but those few minutes energized the team and turned the game in our favor.
I’m pretty sure he was a bit younger. I was in the graduating class that started in 1975 as a freshman and I’m 62 now. If he started 15 years after I did that would make him about 45–47 years old. Then again, I could be wrong!
