Four more for Tuesday, as we continue our pre-spring break blitz. Today’s lot includes Joe Pignatano, Jim Coates, Ronnie Hansen and Lindy McDaniel.

Here are your baseball card facts:

  • Pignatano – Though catchers are not supposed to be runners, Joe led the Tri-State League in triples in 1953.
  • Coates – Jim was a high school sensation in Farnham, Va.
  • Hansen – Ronnie attracted Major League scouts by playing American Legion baseball.
  • McDaniel – Lindy received $50,000 to sign with the Cards.

That’s it. Will be back later with a couple completed surveys.
