Bobby Shantz

Biography:Bobby Shantz (born September 26, 1925 in Pottstown, Pennsylvania) was a Major League Baseball pitcher for the Philadelphia Athletics (1949-1954), Kansas City Athletics (1955-1956), New York Yankees (1957-1960), Pittsburgh Pirates (1961), Houston Colt .45's (1962), St. Louis Cardinals (1962-1964), Chicago Cubs (1964), and the Philadelphia Phillies (1964).

Shantz began his career as a starting pitcher, but about halfway through he converted to a competent relief pitcher.

He enjoyed his best season in 1952 when he led the league in wins (24) and won the MVP Award.

A high-skilled fielder, Shantz won eight consecutive Gold Glove Awards from 1957 to 1964 (American League, 1957-60; National League, 1961-64; in 1957 the award was rendered for both leagues). Shantz also was selected for the All-Star Game in 1951, 1952 and 1957.

Shantz was selected in the 1961 MLB Expansion Draft by the Colt .45s from the Pittsburgh Pirates.
