Seattle Pilots and NY Yankees

ProfRobert comes to our assistance and provides this week’s Baseball Card Trivia.

March 8 is the birthday of Jim Bouton, pitcher and author of Ball Four, which described the 1969 season where he was with the Seattle Pilots before being traded. In Bulldog’s honor, we present players, like Bouton, who toiled for both the Yankees and Pilots, during the latter’s one-year existence. Now, these would be easy to guess if you look at the Pilots’ roster, so no peeking there (rereading Ball Four, however, is always encouraged).


This player had a brief career with the Pilots but was a workhorse, pitching in 15 of Seattle’s first 34 games before being traded to the Yankees for yesterday’s subject.

Scattering the Ashes.jpeg

"Scattering The Ashes has all the feels. Paul Russell Semendinger's debut novel taps into every emotion. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll reexamine those relationships that give your life meaning." — Don Burke, writer at The New York Post

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
