Frank Baumann

1958 Topps

Baumann enjoyed 11 years in the big leagues, coming up with Boston, where he pitched for five seasons and then pitching another five with the Chicago White Sox. His best year was 1960 when he went 13-6 with the ChiSox. He led the American League in ERA that year with a 2.67 mark. He also saved four games which was a career high. The following season, Baumann won 10 games, against 13 losses, for the White Sox. He was primarily deployed from the bullpen over the rest of his time in the majors. He finished his major league career in 1965, pitching four games for the Chicago Cubs.

You may notice the questionnaire is a bit different than the other ones I’ve posted. That’s because it is an earlier version of the project. As some point the final two questions disappeared and the favorite teammate question was added in an effort to make it a little more streamlined.
