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.
