Rae Wilson Scarborough (July 23, 1917 – July 1, 1982) A decent pitcher at the beginning of his career, Ray Scarborough’s most productive year was 1948 for the Senators when he compiled a 15–8 record with a 2.82 ERA. The 1950 All-Star was also part of the 1952 World Series champion New York Yankees. However, over his ten-year Major League career, Ray had some vanilla numbers, compiling a sub-.500 won-lost record. In those days, many players worked in the offseason to supplement their MLB salary. When Scarborough played for Boston, the press discovered his pickle salesman job and dubbed him “the pitching pickle peddler.” In retirement, Scarborough started an oil and supply business in his native North Carolina, and he helped to establish the Mount Olive College baseball program. He was on the 1968 Baltimore Orioles coaching staff and scouted for several different MLB teams until he suffered a heart attack and died in 1982 at age 64.
