1973 Topps #604 - Dennis O'Toole

On this day in 1949, Dennis O'Toole was born.

His brother Jim actually came to the White Sox first, in 1967, but only lasted a few months at the tail end of his career. While Jim was with the team, the Sox took his brother, Dennis, in the 1967 amateur draft. Dennis made his debut in 1969 and pitched a handful of innings each year until 1973 with the South Siders, when he made his longest contribution to the majors with sixteen innings, which was over triple his previous season high innings pitched.

Even though Dennis was taken in the 1967 draft and played in each season since 1969, his first card was in the 1973 set, which marked his last in the majors. O'Toole's only existing cards, according to Beckett's master list, are in the 1973 Topps and O-Pee-Chee sets.
