Catching up with the traceable Joel Horlen.
Horlen, now 74, is believed to be the only person to play on teams that won the Pony League World Series, the College World Series and the major league World Series.
We had a good pitching staff. Led the league in four or five different categories. I still didn’t get pitcher of the year award.
I faced a bunch of good hitters. Tony Oliva won the batting title every year. That’s about the only guy I can remember that I really didn’t like facing. I know I gave up enough hits to everybody else. He was by far the best. I tried to hit him one time, right in the neck. He just stepped to the side and hit a double down the left-field line.
Winning all those different World Series, they’re all good. The major league World Series was more boisterous. We poured 100 bottles of Champagne on each other. Then had to get back on the airplane and go back to Oakland. The party continued on the airplane. We got in about 2 o’clock in the morning. Opened a couple of bars for us there, then celebrated some more. Had to be at the park at 8 o’clock in the morning and be ready for the parade. They served cocktails there, too.
for his generous support.
