Major League Baseball Player. Known as "The Bull", the right-hander broke into the big leagues with the St. Louis Cardinals in 1954 with a 15-6 record. He was traded to Cincinnati on Jan. 31, 1956 for pitcher Jackie Collum and infielder Sonny Senerchia. In 1956 he won his first 13 decisions on the way to a 19-10 record. His amazing streak ended on July 31 when he had a 3-1 lead with one out in the ninth inning, only to see Roberto Clemente hit a three-run homer to give Pittsburgh a 4-3 victory. Lawrence made the All-Star team that year but did not pitch. That season the workhorse started 30 games and pitched in relief 19 times in between starts for a total of 218 innings. The following year he was 16-13 with 32 starts, 17 relief appearances and 250 innings. He had a career record of 69-62 for seven seasons. He is a member of the Reds' Hall of Fame.  (bio by: Ron Coons)
