October 12, 2013 Six More Today

More TTM returns coming back from my batch last week....

Roland Sheldon
came up with the Yankees in 1961 and went 11-5 in his rookie season. He was traded to the Kansas City Athletics in 1965 and finished with the Red Sox in 1966. He continued playing mostly in the PCL until 1970.

Dick Simpson
was originally signed as a free agent back in 1961 by the Los Angeles Angels. He had a great year in 1962 with San Jose in the California League hitting 42 homers and driving in 113 RBIs and then making his major league debut in September of that year. The Angels traded him to the Orioles in 1965 and he ended up playing for the Reds, Cardinals, Astros, Yankees and Pilots until finishing in the PCL in 1971.

Andy Merchant
played in 1 game for the Boston Red Sox in 1975 and 2 games in 1976. Kind of hard to crack a line up if Carlton Fisk is the starting catcher and Bob Montgomery is his back up.

Chuck Cottier
played for the Braves, Tigers, Senators and Angels from 1959 to 1969 and then was a coach for several major league teams from 1979-2001

Ray Herbert
was signed as a free agent in 1949 by the Detroit  Tigers and made his debut in 1950. He was later sold to the Kansas City Athletics ( 1955) and then was traded to the Chicago White Sox where he won 20 games in 1962 and then in 1963 led the American League in shutouts with 7

Bobby Floyd
played with the Baltimore Orioles from 1968-1970 and then the Kansas City Royals from 1970-1974
