Trying to figure this one out. Tex Clevenger and Bob Cerv were originals in 1961 and traded to the Yankees before the season was half over, but neither played in the World Series in 1961 or 1962.
Best I can figure it was George Thomas who played for us in 1961 too, then got in as a PH for Boston in 1967 in Game 3 & struck out. He also got an AB in Game 6 but made an out so he was (0-2) in 1967. That's the best I can figure.
So I'm also wondering who was the first ex-Angel to get a hit in the World Series and also the first pitcher to appear. Can any one do better than George Thomas?
Also, looking at the early 60's World Series makes me wonder when was the first Angel-Dodger trade? Anyone going to the Dodgers had a good chance to be in a Series up till 1966.
