Major League Baseball Player. A right-handed pitcher for six seasons (1957 to 1962) with the St. Louis Cardinals, San Francisco Giants and Boston Red Sox. His most successful season was 1961 when he recorded 6-4 record with 1 save for Boston. He accrued a lifetime record of 16 wins and 23 losses with a 4.07 ERA and 15 saves in 125 games. After his retirement as a player he became a highly regarded pitching coach, serving in that capacity with the Cardinals, California Angels and Detroit Tigers. During his tenure he coached several future Hall of Fame pitchers including Bob Gibson, Nolan Ryan and Steve Carlton, and was the pitching coach for the 1984 Detroit Tigers Championship team. Hall of Fame manager Sparky Anderson called him the best pitching coach that he ever had. He retired from the game in 1985, but continued to work with local and amateur baseball groups near his home of Monroe, Louisiana until shortly before his death. (bio by: Frank Russo)
