TTM Success - Tito Francona
Francona (b. 1933) played in the majors from 1956 to 1970 for the Orioles, White Sox, Tigers, Indians, Cardinals, Phillies, Braves, A's and Brewers. He had 1,395 hits, 125 home runs and a .272 batting average. He finished tied for second in the 1956 AL Rookie of the Year voting (behind Luis Aparicio and tied with Rocky Colavito) and 5th in the 1959 AL MVP voting. He was an All Star in 1961. It is interesting to note that Francona was traded on two occasions for Hall of Famer, Larry Doby (once in 1957 from the Orioles to the White Sox and again in 1959 from the Tigers to the Indians).
I mailed to Francona on November 21 and got the cards back on November 28, for a 7-day TAT.
