Dick Hall

Dick Hall  (1930-    )  One of the top relief pitchers in the 1960s for the Baltimore Orioles. Never famous, just good. Led the American League in saves in 1970, and was instrumental in the Orioles’ World Series victory that year. While calling him “a valuable man to have around,” a 1963 Sports Illustrated profile said Hall had “one of the strangest and least attractive pitching motions in the Major Leagues, a curious tangle and twist that ends with an abrupt little flip of the arm…[and] he looks and acts more like an instructor in qualitative analysis than an athlete” (the author of the article was amazed that Hall had made it from Swarthmore College to the Big Leagues).
