Last one for the day. Goryl spent six years in the Majors, never playing more than 83 games in a season. His best season was 1963 when he hit 9 home runs and drove in 24 runs for the Minnesota Twins. He was a minor league manager and a coach for the Twins following his playing career. He managed Minnesota for parts of the 80 and 81 seasons and has remained in baseball for most of his life, working in the front office of the Cleveland Indians.
