#44 Bobby Locke

Bobby Locke   Cleveland Indians

Career: Over the course of nearly a decade Locke pitched for five clubs but the majority of his career came with the Indians from 1959 to 1961. He was a spot starter with Cleveland and strictly a reliever everywhere else. He amassed a 16-15 record with an ERA of about 4.00 for his career.

In 1960: This was his busiest year as he made 11 starts and pitched 123 innings with a respectable 3.37 ERA and a couple of saves.

Off The Charts: Here's an interview that Locke's grandsons did with him last fall:

The Card: This is Locke's rookie card, at least as far as mainstream sets go. That's Municipal Stadium behind him. I have a small Locke collection that was inspired by pulling a nice signed '68 from a Heritage pack a couple of years ago. I posted that PC on my 5 Tool Collector blog.
