November 11, 2013 Two Returns from "The Friends of Ray Peters"

Mr Peters has been contacting former teammates and opponents from his playing days as I have been making the cards with images supplied by Keith from NYC.

Phil Meyer
played with Ray Peters in 1971 with the Eugene Emeralds in the PCL He was a first round draft choice by the Philadelphia Phillies in the 1967 June Amateur Draft.and stayed in the organization until 1972 and finished with a 22-24 record in six seasons.

He included this amusing anecdote about autograph collecting in his letter from his days in Class A ball in Spartansburg.....I love it

Pat Harrison
didn't play with Mr Peters but they were both named to the Sporting News All American Baseball Team the same year. Mr Harrison played at USC and was on the 1968 National Championship team and eventually went into coaching as an assistant at USC under Rod Dedeaux, and as head coach at Pepperdine and Mississippi and then the Dodgers minor leagues.
