Pitchers' Bios:

* Frank 'Taters' Lary, Detroit Tigers RH - a mound star during this era, he broke into the minors at age 20 in 1950, and then served two years in the military. In his first full season in major leagues, he completed 16-of-31 stars, compiled a 14-15 record, posted a fine 3.10 earned run average in 235 innings.

He twice won over 20 games in a season. In his sophomore Year - 1956 - he had a 21-13 record, with a 3.15 ERA in 294 innings, including 3 shutouts... Frank Lary had six straight years of winning over 10 games 1955, including a brilliant 23-9 W/L mark in 1961, when he completed a resounding total of 22 games in 36 starts, tossed 4 shutouts, and had a 3.24 ERA in 275 innings.


* Ray Sadecki, St Louis Cardinals LH - a bonus baby, he started 26 games as a rookie in 1960, going 9-9 in 157.3 innings... in 1964, the good guy posted a 20-11 record which helped the Cardinals win the pennant, and he started and was the winning pitcher in Game 1 of the 1964 Wold Series.

An 18-year major league veteran, 1960-77, Ray Sadecki posted a solid 135-131 career record, with a 3.78 ERA in 2500.7 innings., and won 4 World Series games.


* Pedro Ramos, Washington Senators RH - born in Pinar del Rio, Cuba... broke into majors as a 19-year old, And signed with the Senators for $150 per/month. His fastball is generally regarded as one of the fastest in baseball history... the outgoing, cigar smoking pitcher, constantly challenged Mickey Mantle to a foot race and also yielded some of Mantle's tape measured homers.

Although he had the misfortune of pitching for the Senators, who were a second division team in this era, Pedro Ramos was a big-time, well-known star pitcher. When he was traded to the Yankees for their pennant run late in '64, he responded by helping the New Yorks to their 5 straight pennant. - Archives - The History of Baseball
