      • Two great successes today!

        -Tom Parsons 1/1 c/o home (Tom signed his 1962 Topps Rookie Card for me, wrote a short note, and included a color photocopy of a 1957 article about his pitching against Steve Dalkowski in the Appalachian League!)
        -Jim Ponceroff 1/1 c/o home (Jim's the result of a technical success and is a REALLY awesome guy! Incidentally, he was also one of the first pitchers to throw a cut fastball, beginning in 1962. Jim estimated a 2-3 mph speed differential between his fastball and his "funny slider." While trying to learn a conventional slider from veteran reliever Harry Oliver, Jim pretty much accidentally developed a cutter, though he called it a slider at the time. "I knew I had something different," Jim said. He doesn't take credit for inventing the pitch, however. Harry Oliver, the pitcher he'd learned it from, was also capable of throwing the pitch, and had been since the late 1950's. Harry Oliver in turn learned the pitch from a pitcher who had deliberately come up with it, but Jim couldn't recall the name. "I think there's your inventor.")
        "They put me in the Hall of Fame? They must really be scraping the bottom of the barrel!"
        -Eppa Rixey, upon learning of his induction to the Baseball Hall of Fame.

              As for me: TWO RTS's.

              -Photi Anthony
              -Hal Haddock
              I know I have tired a number of times..in fact had to have a friend in the hobby give me cards. I think it was the "family" reference that put it over the edge. He lived in NH and tried there a few times but no luck..think he lives in FLA now. My friend in the hobby got him a few years back but got one back of three, I think.

                  I actually spent a substantial amount of time looking for his father, Guy LaValliere, since Guy was a teammate of Steve Dalkowski's in 1958 with the Knoxville Smokies and a regular ballplayer. I had a working address, but then cross-checked it with the Social Security Death Index and found that he passed away in 2003.

                  On a good but totally unrelated note, I found working addresses for both Hal Haddock and Photi Anthony yesterday and re-sent.

                      • Two successes!

                        -Ken Fisher 1/1 c/o home (Wrote a really long, nice letter about what it was like batting against Steve Dalkowski. Signed a Signature Card.)
                        -Don Jacquin (Promised to sign Signature Card once he got it, but did sign the really long, nice letter)
                        -Norm Shill (I'd actually had a prior success with him, but he sent me two pictures of himself with the Visalia A's and a box score from 1960 where Steve Dalkowski pitched that I didn't have. Norm has the highest batting average of any left-handed hitter against Steve Dalkowski with a minimum of 10 PA's.)
