Yep, that would be Tudor, went on to have a pretty damned good career. (Mostly with the Cardinals - was on two WS champions).

Traded for Mike Easler.

Who was later traded for Don Baylor.

Who would have been the DH for the 1986 World Series Champions if Dave Stapleton had been in the game.

As a 12 year old, I went to his ML debut. I remember it because I remember my Dad telling me that it was the first time in a few years that the Sox had started a lefty at home. If I recall correctly, he got rocked early but the Sox came back to win.

John T. was the LH p with slightly less speed than Win.I saw both them pitching in AAA. During the first night at the Howard J. an extra bed was placed in the hotel room for me. We went out with Joe M. the p. coach. I presume Win. R and John T. both just got transferred from AA and I ended up in the same room. During my last week visit to Win I showed him my photoalbum with the pictures taken in Pawtucket and FLA. I have played with both his brothers(2ndb and p) in the team, so know his family very well.
Check out youtube " win remmerswaal" some old 1973 Storks shots were taken by my father.

So cool. I have been to Holland by the way, actually the whole Netherlands, and loved it there.

Tell more~!

Thanks for posting the documentry about Win. Someday I will make a short translation.
You can see his father Jaap; the 3 guys in the dug-out are former team players, the guy with the grey hair is the former baseball TV reporter and I am in my living room in front of the book case. Highlight is Win facing Reggie Jackson with a SO. My father filmed the Storks players in the red uniforms (1974)

A short story on snow tires

During my last week visit to Win he remembered (I joint him on that day to the 2nd hand car-dealer ) his first car he bought in Pawtucket was an old Chevy.
During away games I was crusing around in the Chevy going to Newport, Plymouth etc. One day(Win's day-off) we were playing golf and visiting the Mayflower. This Chevy was unstable in curves during rainfall and we had to stop alongside the road. Inspection revealed we were driving around on snow tires..... We drove all the way to FLA on these tires and got stuck in the sand of the Saint Augustin beach on these snow tires...

Fondly remember Win from his days with the HaSox in the mid 70's and wondered how he was doing, which led me to this board eventually. Luis DeLeon and Julio Valdez (2 of his teammates on that team) related how at a get together one year, Win tossed a plate of spaghetti sauce onto the roof of a room they were in and everyone broke out in laughter at him. He was a character, but the best reliever on some pretty poor HaSox teams while he played with them and a nice man as remember all those years back. Luis and Julio didn't speak all that well English, so would go with them around town and translate as best as could a few years and some other guys who were friendly with.

 

Think have some old Brownie photo's of that old 75-76 Hasox team around here somewhere, if can dig them up and one has Win in it? Will scan and upload if it's ok.

Winter Haven Red Sox, probably should have called them that instead.. Back in the day when they had the FSL team? Slang, or name for them was abbreviated to just plain old "HaSox"

I went to spring training there when I was 4. I guess I wasn't down with the baseball lingo at that time. Winter Haven seemed like the only choice, though.

Welcome to the board, by the way. We are frequently juvenile and/or obnoxious (or maybe I'm just thinking of me), but despite appearances, it's all good people around here.

Thank you and glad to be aboard.

 

Interesting in that link. Manager is Rac Slider, same manager from Winter Haven Red Sox a decade later and a gentleman I kept in touch with several years after his coaching career ended with Boston, a very nice man, as well as knowledgeable regarding the game and taught me much, along with ex Sox manager and long time minor league/major league manager Joe Morgan. Being from Winter Haven and spending countless hours at the park had some benefits all those years.

 

Stories of ballplayers, hanging around with many while they were bored, bar hopping with some later on (yes, some did that long ago) and other foolishness was just the kind of thing some liked to do in a place they were not familiar with.
