-Had a reputation as a good defensive third baseman and a patient hitter; despite a career average of .244, he walked more than he struck out (516 to 466) and compiled a respectable .341 on-base percentage.
-On August 2, 1966, he entered a game against the Yankees as a pinch hitter in the ninth inning. He struck out, but remained in the game at third base and hit a game-winning inside-the-park home run in the 11th!
-Was drafted by the Kansas City Royals prior to their inaugural 1969 season and went on to be their primary third baseman for four and one-half years.
-In 1974, the Royals traded Schaal back to the Angels to create an opening at third base for a rookie named George Brett. Paul called it a career at the end of the year.
Fun facts about Jack Warner:
-Signed with the Angels during their first year of existence. According to Warner, "They didn't even have a minor league farm system set up yet, and there was no place to send me." He worked out with the team in Los Angeles during homestands, and looked so good in the batting cage that they developed him as an outfielder rather than a pitcher.
-Opened the 1966 season with the Angels, and created a major buzz with a .345 average, 5 home runs, and 13 RBI in his first 15 games. However, he soon lost his stroke, and was hitting .211 with 7 HR and 16 RBI through 45 games. He played his last major league game on July 27.
-There are various claims around the Internet that Warner's struggles were linked to injuries. I found differing reports of a shoulder injury and/or a gash on the hand from collisions with an outfield fence in 1966, as well as a subsequent elbow surgery. As always, feel free to supplement my crack research in the comments.
