I had forgotten that Freddie Patek originally was with the Pirates. He was a good little shorstop for those KC Royals teams in 70's that were usually in the playoff mix. He really was little too. Standing only about 5 foot and 4 inches. He would choke way up on the bat.Something you never see today.
Also didn't realize Bunning played with the Pirates. Both of these lineups are a preview of the great 70's rivalry between these two teams.

Wasn't this Mays rookie season? If so,maybe they were breaking him in slowly. I know I have read that he got off to a terrible start his rookie season but they stuck with him. I would say it worked out nicely.

No, Willie's rookie season was 1951 and then he went into the service for most of 1952 and all of 1953.

I checked his 1954 stats and he had a great year...maybe he was just in a little slump on and around 6-4-54.
