Grody was a basketball player and a baseball pitcher from New York. He tried to make good with John McGraw and the Giants in 1921, but was sent to Waterbury in the Eastern League. He was later pitching Jersey City and Montreal in the Internation League in the later 1920's. Despite his attempts at baseball, it was on the basketball court where he really made his impact. He played for dozens of professional and semi-professional hoop teams over his 20-plus yeat career.

He married Margaret Edgar (1904-1999) and they had two daughters and a son.
