Rich Beck 1965 Yankees

Rich Beck played in 3 games for the 1965 Yankees. He has a very impressive but short Major League record of 2-1 with a 2.14 ERA.

"Fortunately I was able to pitch in the 'original' House that Ruth Built- not the remodel" concerning his time with New York.

I asked Rich about his days with the Chattanooga Lookouts in Tennessee (1963-1964). Rich says that he, "loved pitching in Engel Stadium. Batters had to hit it a long way to get it out of the park, especially to left- giant scoreboard to get the ball over."
