    Steve Barber


    One of the Orioles' "Baby Birds" (a group of promising young pitchers), Barber came up as a flame-thrower with a reputation for wildness. He led the AL in walks his rookie year, but by 1963 had settled down to become Baltimore's first modern-day ML 20-game winner. Tendinitis in his elbow sidelined him for the second part of 1966, and Barber missed pitching in the All-Star Game and World Series. He went 8-1/3 innings in his first start of 1967 before giving up a hit to Jim Fregosi, and threw a combined no-hitter with Stu Miller against Detroit two weeks later (Baltimore lost that game 2-1). He was traded to the Yankees in mid-'67. Problems with his elbow and his pitching mechanics limited his success with five more teams. (JCA)
