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...
