  • Steve Arlin and Harry Warner, former Padres figures, pass away

    Steve Arlin was staple in the Padres rotation in the 1970s, before being shipped to the Indians in 1974. He was 32-62 for those hapless Padres teams. He died August 17 at 70.

    Steve Arlin – the Padres pitcher to come the closest to completing a no-hitter and a national champion at Ohio State – died Aug. 17 of undisclosed causes, the university announced last week. Arlin was 70 years old.

    A right-hander who went 24-3 over two years at Ohio State, Arlin pitched parts of six season in San Diego after the Padres plucked him out of the Phillies system in the 1969 expansion draft.

    Harry Warner scouted for the Padres. He died April 11, 2015 at 86.

    Our beloved father, Harry C. Warner, 86, of Reeders, went to be with our Lord and Savior on Saturday, April 11. He was the husband of the late Betty J. (Bost) Warner who died January 8, 1994. ...

    Harry will always be remembered as a great coach and mentor to many baseball players and helped mold their careers. He touched many lives and was full of encouragement. He always told us to persevere and to “pull up our bootstraps”. That was just one of his many sayings.

    He loved to hunt with his buddies and brothers-in-law. He was always ready for a hot dog and a beer.

    His career in playing baseball began in the Poconos and in 1946 and from there he played with and managed the Boston Braves, Washington Senators, Minnesota Twins, Erie Senators, Orlando Twins, Charlotte Hornets, Tacoma Twins, Lychburg Twins, Renao Silver Sox, Wisconsin Rapid Twins, Toronto Blue Jays, Syracus Chiefs, and Visalia Oaks. From 1984 to 1990 he scouted for the Minnesota Twins and San Diego Padres.

    The highlight and lifelong dream was when he made it to the Major Leagues. In 1981 he began his career with the Milwaukee Brewers as Third Base Coach. He had yet another dream come true when he went to the American League championship playoffs, and continued to play against the St. Louis Cardinals in the 1982 World Series.

    Harry was a member of St. Paul Lutheran Church in Tannersville and the Major League Baseball Players Alumni.
