1970 Topps

Moeller won 26 games pitching for the Los Angeles Dodgers from 1962-1971. He came up as a 19-year old in 1962 and went 6-5 in 15 starts. When he made his first start that year he became the youngest starting pitcher in Dodgers’ history. Moeller spent 1963 in the minor leagues but was back in the majors in 1964 going 7-13 with a 4.21 ERA. He set his career high in starts, innings pitched and strikeouts that season. Moeller returned to the minors for the 1965 season but returned to the big-league club in 1966. He continued to bounce between the majors and minors for the next couple seasons before earning a spot in the Dodgers’ bullpen in 1969. He stayed in that role for three seasons with 1971 being his final year in the majors.
