1959 Topps

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.

Dick Tomanek – career stats

Writer, historian, father, intrepid traveller, journalist, punk rocker ... I am actually in the (a) Hall of Fame. They said to never trust anyone over 30 and now I am so far past that point, spinning aimlessly and still trying to figure out my place in the world.
