Hal Woodeshick

Baseball ∙ Monaca

 

 

 

 

Harold (Hal) Woodeshick once pitched a perfect game at Monaca High School and was bitten by the baseball bug for good. After graduating in 1950, he played six seasons of minor league ball before starting his major league career in 1956 with the Detroit Tigers. By the time he hung up his glove eleven seasons later, he had pitched for the Tigers, the Houston Colts (now the Astros), the Cleveland Indians, the Washington Senators, and the St Louis Cardinals. Noted for his sinker ball, the powerful 6'-3" southpaw hurler compiled a highly respectable 3.46 lifetime earned run average during his major league career. Hal saw considerable service as a staring pitcher during the early years of his major league career and reached his peak in the final five seasons as one of the most reliable relief hurlers in the majors. Highlights of Halís career were appearing in the 1963 All Star Game while pitching for Houston and seeing action in the 1967 World Series as a relief Pitcher for the St Louis Cardinals, who beat the Boston Red Sox in seven games.
