One Page of Paul Foytack

This series will highlight "one page" at a time from my binder of correspondence and autographs from former Angels and Patriots.

I wrote Paul Foytack twice: the first time I didn't have a card for him to sign, but he graciously wrote me a nice letter. The second time I was able to include a couple cards as well as a few questions.

Paul Foytack RHP Los Angeles Angels 1963-1964

First time correspondence received prior to 2005.

Second correspondence received August, 2010.

Foytack was already in his 10th season when he was traded by the Detroit Tigers with Frank Kostro to the Angels for George Thomas and cash in June 1963. He went 5-5 with 3.71 ERA for the Angels the rest of that season. But after a rocky start to 1964 he was released by the Angels, played out the year in the minors, and spend part of 1965 playing in Japan finishing out his career.


  1. Super cool. That's so awesome that he was able to call Kaline his teammate... and he actually had the opportunity to pitch to the great Ted Williams. Looks like he held him to a .267 batting average... but his slugging percentage was .578.

  2. I'm in awe of his penmanship. That's a lost art these days!
