Duane Pillette - 1951 Bowman

Duane Xavier Pillette (July 24, 1922 – May 6, 2011) Duane Pillette came up with the Yankees in 1949 and contributed two wins for the World Series champs that year. The son of former Major League pitcher Herman Pillette, Duane was traded to the Browns in 1950 and stayed on when the team became the Baltimore Orioles. While in St. Louis, Pillette was befriended by teammate Satchel Paige, who knew Pillette’s father from the winter leagues and barnstorming. In 1951, Pillette unfortunately led the American League with 14 losses and 106 earned runs allowed. The last Brownie to pitch in St. Louis and the first pitcher to win a game for the Orioles, Pillette never had a winning season. He retired in 1956 after posting a career 38–66 record in eight seasons. Pillette continued in the minors through 1960 and later was owner-manager of a mobile home dealership. He passed away at the age of 88 in 2011.
