Pickoff Moves

Today's Birthdays

Joe Adcock CAL,LAA b. 1927, played 1964-1966, All-Star: 1960, d. 1999-05-03. A Top 100 Angel, Adcock came to the Angels in the same deal that also sent Leon Wagner to Cleveland. (Wagner, himself a Top 100 Angel, hated the trade, saying he wished he had been "somewhere within the United States" in a press conference after the deal, a comment he ended up apologizing for.) Playing in the long shadow of Hank Aaron in Milwaukee, he still was a prodigious home run hitter himself, with 336 over 17 seasons.
