#523 Chuck Dobson

Hometown product born in Kansas City and attended U of Kansas was signed by Athletics in their KC days 1965....From 1965 to 1966 jumped from minors to majors despite less than great 0-6 record in AA ball...used sparingly at first, gradually collected the sequence of 4, 10, and 12 wins in space of years were 1969-1971 when Chuck garnered 15, 16, and 15 wins for Oakland....Could had more wins in 1971 but did play until May....Bottom dropped out in 1972 when he had arm surgery in off season...only action seen in 1972 was an 0-3 record in AA (what’s with this a total AA record of 0-9  for a guy who won 72 games in the bigs?)....continued in minors 1973 and pitched one last game for the Atlethics....released before 1974 and eventually was picked up by California....compiled a 2-5 record in two partial seasons in Anaheim.
