TTM Goodness - Six 1960's Pitchers

I've been quite lucky in the TTM world. So lucky, in fact, I have the option of categorizing autograph posts down to decade and position, which is pretty excellent. Let's roll.

1961 Topps Jay Hook.

Eight year career, the first five in Cincy. Appeared in 79 games for the Reds, starting 56 of them, mostly in 1959 and 1960.
1962 Topps Dave Hillman.

An 8 year big league career, mostly with the Cubs, he snuck into 2 games for Cincinnati in 1962, his final year.
1965 Topps Ted Wills

Had a 5 year major league pitching career, where, like Hillman, found himself in 2 games for the Reds in 1962, which comprised his entire Reds stint.

1965 Topps Roger Craig

Roger Craig found himself in the majors for 12 years, including a 40-game appearance for the Reds in 1965.

1969 Topps Bill Short

Bill Short had a 6 year pitching career, the last of which was with Cincy in 1969 in which he threw 4 games in relief.
1969 Topps Gerry Arrigo

Arrigo spent 10 years pitching in the majors, mostly with the Reds. In 5 years in the 'Nati, he pitched in 118 games, starting 57 of them, from 1965 to 1969.

Nice group to grace the ol' auto binder. Go vote in the sidebar for Round 1/Group 9 of the Tournament. Go Reds.
