Pitching primarily out of the bullpen, Tomanek played for five seasons in the big leagues for the Cleveland Indians and Kansas City A’s. He pitched in one game in both 1953 and 1954 for Cleveland before returning to the minor leagues for more seasoning. He returned to the majors in 1957 and pitched in 34 contests for the Indians. The next year saw him get his most work as he threw in 54 games for the Tribe and the A’s, winning seven games and losing eight with a 4.50 ERA. He saved five games as well. The home run he mentioned on his questionnaire came that year as well, for the Indians against the Yankees.
