Happy # 72 Wally Bunker

My guess is that Wally Bunker’s baseball card is in that box that my brother is holding on to.

Bunker had a great start with the Orioles.   He went 19-5 with the 1964 Orioles.    Bunker was one of the many young arms that included Dave McNally and Jim Palmer.

In 1966, Wally pitched a 1-0 victory in game 3 of the 1966 World Series.   It put the O’s 3-0 in that Series against LA that they would eventually sweep.

He ended up with the expansion KC Royals after the 1968 draft.     Actually, he pitched well in KC.   He won 12 games and threw the first pitch in Royals’ history.

Bunker retired after after the 1971 season.
