1959 Topps #103 - Billy Goodman

On this day in 1926, Billy Goodman was born.

In 1958 and 1959, Billy patrolled third base for the Pale Hose. He occasionally played the other three infield positions as well. Goodman's average took a nose dive in 1959, despite the team making the World Series that year.

By 1960 and 1961, his last years with the White Sox, Billy had become a part time player. Coming to the White Sox in a trade with the Orioles in December 1957, Goodman was released by the team in April 1962, before he saw any playing time with the Sox that year. He signed as a free agent with the Houston Colt 45s in May 1962, which turned out to be his last season in the majors.
