Major League Baseball Player. For eight seasons (1964 to 1971), he was a pitcher with the Minnesota Twins, Detroit Tigers and Baltimore Orioles. Born David Wilson Boswell, he attended Calvert Hall College High School (Maryland), prior to being signed as an amateur free agent by the Twins in 1963. He marked his Major League debut on September 18th 1964 and recorded 2 wins in 4 games pitched that year. The following season (1965), he split time as a starter and reliever (posting 6 wins in 27 games) and was a contributor to Minnesota's run at the American League Pennant. During the 1965 World Series, he appeared in one game and recorded 3 strikeouts in 2 innings pitched. In 1969, he reached the 20-win mark and experienced post season action as the Twins captured the American League Western Division. The season will perhaps be best remembered for an off-field altercation in a bar which involved Boswell, his teammate Bob Allison and manager Billy Martin ending with Martin landing a punch which allegedly knocked Boswell unconscious. Over the years the two men became close friends. In 205 regular season games, he compiled a 68 win 56 loss record with a 3.52 lifetime ERA in 1,065 innings pitched. Following his career as a player, he was employed with baseball fantasy camps. He died from a heart attack. (bio by: C.S.)
