Rogan: Sports’ Forgotten Heroes: Skip Lockwood

From SABR member Warren Rogan at Sports’ Forgotten Heroes on April 14, 2020:

Skip Lockwood was not one of baseball’s best-known relievers. In fact, Lockwood was a journeyman ballplayer who debuted with the Kansas City Athletics in 1965 as a third baseman. A “bonus-baby”, he did not do too well at the plate. So, the A’s sent him down to the minors and it was there he was converted to a pitcher. He had a live arm for sure. Lockwood made it back to the Majors with the Seattle Pilots in 1969 and stayed with the franchise (the Pilots moved to Milwaukee and became the Brewers in 1970) through 1973.

Skip, who recently released his first book, “Insight Pitch,” shares so much with us. Join Sports’ Forgotten Heroes for this wonderful conversation with this baseball veteran.
