Unpossible Autograph Friday- Buddy Peterson

Buddy Peterson played professional baseball from 1947-60 but was only to crack a major league roster for two brief stints over his career. He played in six games for the 1955 White Sox and seven for the 1957 O's.

For once, I can't blame whoever put the Orioles Crown set for not being able to find a picture of a player wearing an Orioles cap as there doesn't seem to be many pictures from Buddy's playing days. It's hard for me to believe that players ever wore glasses like those on the field, but I guess it was the style back in the day.

After his playing career ended, he was a minor league manager for six seasons in the Mets, Royals, and A's farm systems. He passed away in 2006 of complications from a stroke. RIP Buddy.
