Al Bumbry

The American League Rookie of the Year in 1973, Bumbry enjoyed 14 seasons in the major leagues, 13 of which were spent with the Baltimore Orioles.

Jim Bolger

A veteran of seven big league seasons, Bolger played for the Reds, Cubs, Indians and Phillies from 1950-1959. Bolger hit just six total home runs in his major league career but, as he notes on his questionnaire, one of them was a particularly big one as he connected on a long ball when called on to pinch […]

Bob Blaylock

A 10-year minor leaguer, Blaylock was never able to find his footing in the majors. He pitched in 17 total big league games in 1956 and 1959, winning one and losing seven. He started seven total games and pitched the other 10 out of the bullpen. He gives some nice answers to the questions though. Like Cerv, […]
