Happy Birthday, Jackie Warner

Jackie WarnerHappy Birthday to Jackie Warner, who played Right Field for the Angels in 1966. I faced Jackie once, on May 7, 1966 at Anaheim Stadium and Marcelino Lopez was pitching for the Angels. He went 0-for-3; the biggest problem I had that day was Rick Reichardt, who hit a triple and then scored off Norm Siebern’s single. I pitched a four-hitter, a complete game, and the Yankees won, 3-1. That was the last time I pitched against Jackie. And I say this with no disrespect: in fourteen At-Bats against Yankee pitchers, Jackie never got a hit. He was traded after that season to Kansas City for ex-Yankee Roger Repoz, but never got back to the majors.
