Wes Stock

1967 Topps

Stock won 27 games over parts of nine big-league seasons, pitching for the Baltimore Orioles and the Kansas City A’s. Stock came up with Baltimore in 1959 and appeared in seven games. His best season came in 1964 when he pitched in 64 games for the Orioles and A’s. He went 8-3 that season with a 2.30 ERA. He recorded his career high in strikeouts with 115 and saves with five. Stock stuck with the Royals though the 1967 campaign, which was his last. Following his playing career, Stock was the pitching coach for the A’s, Milwaukee Brewers and Seattle Mariners. He also served as a television commentator on Mariners’ broadcasts in the early 1980’s.

His survey is a prime example of what we’re after. Solid, in-depth answers that give the reader a glimpse beyond the numbers, into his career.

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.
