Watt spent most of his career as a valuable member of the Orioles' bullpen-by-committee
after going 2-5 in 13 starts (the only starts of his ML career) in his rookie 1966
season. That year he was 7-2 with four saves in relief as the Orioles won the franchise's
first World Championship. His best effort came in 1969, when he was 5-2 with a career-high
16 saves (tied for fourth in the league). Baltimore won the AL pennant, but Watt
lost the fifth and final game of the World Series
to the Mets. He also lost Game
Four of the 1970 WS. He saved Game One of the 1971 LCS, then lost Game Four of the
1971 WS, the first night game in Series history. Watt never had a bad season in his
eight years with the Orioles, and was in double figures in saves for four straight
years (1968-71), finishing with 80 for his career.
Watt pitched no-hitters on April
24 and May 6, 1965 for Elmira (Eastern League).
