Dennis Higgins, a relief pitcher, put together a fine career in the major leagues, although he pitched for mainly mediocre teams during 7 years in the majors. As a rookie in 1966 for the Chicago White Sox, the 6-ft 3 inch, 180 pound right-handed Dennis Higgins had a 1-0 record with a sterling 2.52 ERA in 42 games, including one start, allowed just 66 hits and struckout 86 batters in 93 innings. A well-regarded pitcher, his pitching arsenal included mainly a mid-90s mph fastball, a curve and a nice changeup, which he occasionally gripped crossed the seams to get a different rotation of the spin. Injury plagued the next year, Dennis Higgins went 1-2 and pitched in just 9 games, then was traded to the Senators where he hung up a 4-4 w/l record with a 3.25 ERA in a career high 59 games. In 1969 he compiled a 10-9 record with 71 Ks in 85.1 innings. Then in December he was trade in this deal to the Indians.

Barry Moore worked as a starting pitcher during most of his 6 seasons in the majors, five of them with Washington, 1965-1969. His best season was 1969 when he posted a 9-8 record with a 4.30 earned ruin average per 9 innings, completed 4 of 25 starts, plus 6 relief games. Barry Moore relied more on the movement of his curve balls and worked up-and-down over home plate rather than fastballs.

Dave Nelson, born in Fort Sill, Oklahoma. Dave Nelson split his 10-year tenure in the big leagues between playing at 2nd base and 3rd base. A noted quick-stepping outfielder, he stole 187 career bases, including a high of 51 bases in 1972. He had his best batting years from 1972-1975 while playing with the Texas Rangers.

Dodgers Win Back-to-Back Pennants 1965-1966
The mid-1960s was one of the most prosperous ever for the Los Angeles Dodgers. They won three National League pennants in four years, 1963, 1965, 1966 and two World Championships - 1963 and 1965. The Dodgers were picked to finish third in the NL in 1966 despite the fact that they won the World Series in '65. Then, the Dodgers edged out San Francisco by only a game and a half to win another pennant - 1966.

Pitching legend Sandy Koufax, one of the most dominant pitchers in baseball history, captured the attention of baseball fans throughout the country by winning a major league high 27 games and seemed to be a 'one man gang' in leading the Dodgers to the pennant in 1966. And, he captured his fifth straight National League ERA Crown in '66 with a brilliant 1.73 ERA (1962-1966).

Reliever Bob L Miller chalked up 4 consecutive seasons of earned run averages per 9 innings of under 3.00 runs per games, From 1963 thru 1966 Bob Miller compiled ERA of 2.89, 2.62, 2,97 and 2.77. In 1964 he had a 7-7 record with 9 saves and led the National League with 74 games.
