Today’s batch – Don Pavletich, Bob Blaylock, Dick Tomanek, Alex Grammas and Dick Stigman. Two interesting facts – Pavletich was Johnny Bench’s backup when Bench arrived in the majors and Stigman made the American League all-star team as a rookie in 1960. Hopefully I’ll have much more on the quintet in the weeks to come, when their letters come back.
