Here's the nattily bespectacled Frank Kreutzer, who the Senators scouted while he was working at the local public library. Full disclosure: This cheap joke is not to be interpreted as a dig at librarians. Why, my own girlfriend is a librarian.
-Frank called Buffalo, NY home. He attended Villanova University before signing with the Red Sox in 1961.
-Won his first career start on September 28, 1963, allowing one run on three hits in five innings. Chicago topped the Senators, 7-2.
-Split the 1964 season between the Pale Hose and the Senators. It was one of only two full seasons in the bigs for Frank, and his best overall. He was 5-7 with a 4.10 ERA as a swingman.
-Spent much of the four seasons from 1966-1969 pitching at AAA for the Senators, Braves, and Pirates, resurfacing for a disastrous nine-appearance stretch in Washington in late 1966 (0-5, 6.03 ERA) and two so-so innings in D.C. in 1969.
-His eight wins rank fifth all-time among Villanova alumni. Turn-of-the-20th-Century righthander Red Donahue leads the way with 164...but you probably knew that already.
