Whenever I see a card of Jim Maloney, I am always reminded of his relative anonymity. He was a standout pitcher of the 1960s, but was virtually forgotten by the time I started following baseball in the early 1970s. No one talked about Maloney in the '70s, or the '80s for that matter. The first time I remember his name even being mentioned was the 1990s. And I’ve never written about him, not since becoming a writer about 13 years ago. Well, it’s time for that to change.
