    As I remember it, Simmons could not play in the World Series because he was drafted.

    RIP, Curt. I only remember you at the end of your career when you were trying to come back.

In recent years I have been working on a set of British coins - at least one coin from each king or queen who issued pieces that are collectible. I am also collecting at least one coin for each Roman emperor from Julius Caesar to ... ?

    I recall him as a St.Louis Cardinal.

    I always thought of him as a Cardinal....

    I didn't know until now that he was a Phillies 1950 Wizz Kid....
    In 1967(?) he went to the Angels

    At the time I thought it was cool because he was on the 1964 Cardinals World Series winning team.....Anything to help that miserable Angels team! I don't remember seeing him pitch for the Angels...
    Hank Aaron and Stan Musial both said that he was the toughest pitcher they ever faced....... That says quite a lot.....

    For Goldenage....what ballpark was this photo taken in?.....
