Biography

American baseball pitcher who played with the Brooklyn Dodgers/ Los Angeles Dodgers (1953–1966), Detroit Tigers (1966–1967) and San Diego Padres (1969).

He started with the Dodgers in Brooklyn, moving with the team to Los Angeles. In 1965, he dazzled the Yankees and pitched the Brooklyn Dodgers to their only World Series Championship.
