A former Seton Hall basketball star, Coombs was initially unable to control his fastball-slider repertoire and was up and down with Houston for seven seasons. Sold to San Diego in 1970, he was 10-14 as a starter. (MC)
FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
September 27, 1963: Using a lineup of nine rookies the Colt 45s lose 103 to the Mets. The lineup includes P Jay Dahl, 17 (debut); C Jerry Grote, 20; 1B Rusty Staub, 19; 2B Joe Morgan, 20; 3B Glenn Vaughan, 19; SS Sonny Jackson, 19 (debut); and outfielders Brock Davis, 19, Aaron Pointer, 21, and Jim Wynn, 21. Dahl loses his only ML game at 17 and will die in an auto accident at 19. Houston 2B Joe Morgan will play 22 years, and 1B Rusty Staub, 23. Aaron Pointer singles for his only hit this year: his sisters will do better with a top-10 hit of "Fire," by Bruce Springsteen. Joe Hoerner and Danny Coombs follow Dahl to the mound in their ML debuts. 20-year-old P Larry Yellen debuted yesterday and 18-year-old OF Ivan Murrell debuts tomorrow.

June 12, 1970: Pittsburgh's Dock Ellis no-hits San Diego 20 in the first game of a doubleheader. Ellis walks eight and hits one and gets all his support on a pair of Willie Stargell home runs. The Padres take the nitecap, 52, behind Danny Coombs. Nate Colbert has a pair of triples and Ferrara homers.
