Five more for Friday – Curt Raydon, Ed Bressoud, Don Gross, Hank Foiles and Tex Clevenger . Here are your baseball card facts:

  • Raydon – Curt was originally signed by the Braves.
  • Bressoud – Ed attended City College of L.A.
  • Gross – Don Finished 23 games for his mates last year.
  • Foiles – Hank pinch hit a single in the All-Star Game.
  • Clevenger – Tex attended Fresno State College before turning pro.

Had a minute, so I fired off one more, to Mel Roach.

  • Roach – Mel attends the University of Virginia between seasons.

Seems like a pretty learned bunch. Hopefully they have plenty to say when the write back!
