Bob Oliver, outfielder for the 1965 Pirates. He was signed as an amateur free agent in 1963 and spent three full seasons working his way up from A-ball to get a brief September look with the Pirates in 1965. He played three games, all off the bench, going 0-for-2 with a run scored. Oliver returned to the minors for two more seasons before the Pirates traded him to the Minnesota Twins for pitcher Ron Kline. He would go on to play seven more seasons in the majors, 847 total games and hit .256 with 94 homers and 419 RBIs. Oliver recently ran his own baseball academy in California. He is the father of major league pitcher Darren Oliver, who played 20 seasons in the majors.
