As by chance I was watching Game 2 of the 1970 World Series that was on my local sports channel MASN as part of Orioles Classics last night. McGlothlin started that game. I had forgotten that he had come over from the Angels in a trade with Pedro Borbon for Alex Johnson and Chico Ruiz. Pretty good trade for the Reds.
My recollection on this is different...I thought sure it was leukemia.
