September 22, 2012 Ten Returns Today

Nice mail day as I got back 10 TTM back........

Ray Sadecki

Ray pitched mostly for the Cardinals, Giants and Mets from 1960-1977. In 1964, he won 20 games for the World Champion St Louis Cardinals. He was traded to the Giants for Orlando Cepeda in 1966.

Dave Nelson

Dave played second base for the Cleveland Indians, the Washington Senators / Texas Rangers and the Kansas City Royals from 1968-1977. He currently is employed by the Milwaukee Brewers.

Chuck Estrada

In 1960 as a rookie pitcher in the "Baby Birds" rotation, Mr Estrada tied with Jim Perry for the American League lead in wins with 18. The next year, 1961,  he won 15. He hurt his elbow after the 1963 season and was never the same again. He later would be a pitching coach for several teams.

Jim Duckworth

Jim played for the Washington Senators from 1963-1966. In June 1966, he was traded to the Athletics and traded back to the Senators a month later in July.

Doug Rau

Doug was a starting pitcher for the great  Dodger teams from 1972- 1978, He won 81 games with them.

Dal Maxvill

Dal Maxill was the starting shortstop on the World Champion St Louis Cardinals teams of the 1960s. He was a good fielder but a weak hitter but with hitters like Lou Brock, Curt Flood,  Roger Maris and Orlando Cepeda in the lineup, the Cardinals had enough hitting. In 1984 h became the General Manger of the Cardinals.

Ken Szotkiewicz

Ken played shortstop for the 1970 Detroit Tigers playing in 47 games

Jim Donohue

Jim started in the St Louis Cardinals organization. He came up to the major leagues in 1961 with the Detroit Tigers but was traded to the Los Angeles Angels during the season.

George Woodson

George never pitched in the major leagues but he did appear on a 1969 Topps Cleveland Indians Rookie Stars card so his name will live forever. Usually I try to make at least 3 cards of a player but this was the only photo of George I had, so I colorized it.

Charlie Spikes

Charley originally was with the Yankees but he got traded to the Cleveland Indians in the big deal for Graig Nettles. He became a starting outfielder for the Indians the next four seasons.
