           Phil Paine --- 1958
                                                             
                                                                                May 25-26, 2015     





A reliever for the Milwaukee Braves and   
St. Louis Cardinals during the 1950’s, Phil
Paine would log one save, but win 10
games in 95 outings with a nifty 3.36 ERA.

Not exactly noteworthy numbers, but the
trailblazing Paine would hold the distinction
of being one of the initial former major
leaguers to make his way across the Pacific
to play in the Nippon Professional Baseball
League.
