Born Andrew Auguste Etchebarren, he signed with the Baltimore Orioles in 1961 as an amateur free agent. He played a few games with Orioles' main club in 1962 and 1965 before becoming the starting catcher for the team in 1966. He was a part of the Orioles' World Series championship team that year and went on to play for the team for the next nine and half years before being traded to the Calfornia Angels during the 1975 season. While with the Orioles, he was also a part of their 1970 World Series-winning team and helped the team to win a total four American League pennants and five American League Eastern Division championships. He was also a two-time All-Star (1966 and 1967) with the Orioles. He played for the Angels for two and half seasons before joining the Milwaukee Brewers in 1978 for his final season as a player.
