#629 Paul Doyle

A lefty adding to his longevity…..Like Dick Woodson four cards before…Spent all of 1971 in minors…Started in the minor 1959….Ten seasons before he saw the light of a MLB park…Had long employment in both Texas League locales of El Paso and Armarillo plus a one year stint in Dallas/Ft. Worth…Trade to Atlanta was the key to future MLB employment…Called up late May 1969, made the most of time garnering a sparkling 2.03 ERA in 36 games all in short releif….Relieved a faltering Ron Reed for one inning in game 2 of first NLCS…It was his last appearance in a Braves uniform for he was sold to Angels on November 26th, 1969…Much less effective in Anaheim…ERA doubled…appeared in 49 games altogether for Angel and then Padres later in the 1970 season….Returned to California’s SLC club for 1971….Got in two games for the halos in 1972…a Interesting SABR... mostly written by Paul himself
