Unpossible Autograph Friday- Valmy Thomas

2010 continues to be a very bad year for former Orioles as Valmy Thomas became the 11th former O to die during this calendar year.  He passed away on October 16th in his native US Virgin Islands. 

Valmy played in the Majors from 1957-61 and is the only player in baseball history to play five seasons in five different cities.  He played for the New York Giants ('57), San Francisco Giants ('58), Philadelphia Phillies ('59), Orioles ('60), and Cleveland Indians ('61).

Valmy was actually shot by another man when they were both competing for the same woman and almost died in 1962 but luckily survived the shooting.

RIP Valmy.
