A player of whom I had no memory whatsoever...but he had a decent 9-year career (1959-1967) career, beginning with Detroit and ending up in Atlanta. Mostly a slightly below average starting career, his one good year was in 1964, when he was 15-9 with a 2.76 ERA. For the rest of his career, he was 34-62, with an ERA around 4 (in the mini-dead-ball-era of the late 1960s, that was emphatically not good).
I didn't remember him, either, though I should have because of his historic place in Houston baseball history.
