From SABR member Warren Rogan at Sports’ Forgotten Heroes on July 1, 2019, with SABR member Tom Simon:
Ray Collins was born in Vermont and played baseball for his beloved University of Vermont Catamounts. He parlayed his collegiate career into a terrific career for the Boston Red Sox. In fact, with the Red Sox he played seven season and in 1913 he went 19-8 and followed that with a 20-13 campaign in 1914. Not long after, though, shoulder injuries slowed Collins down and disappeared from the game. Tom Simon, who has written about several MLB stars from Vermont, stops by SFH for a terrific discussion about a pitcher with so much potential, but had a career cut short by injury.
