One Page of Don Lee

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

   Don Lee, RHP, Los Angeles Angels 1962-1965
Traded by the Minnesota Twins to the Los Angeles Angels for Jim Donohue on May 26, 1962.
My father was my favorite player - Thornton Lee. All Star Pitcher 1941 - American League - record 22-11. I played [many many] times I even had a White Sox uniform so I could go on the field during batting practice. I hit a home run in K.C. off John Kucks. Was a great thrill pitching back to back shut outs against Boston Red Sox when the temp was over 100 in Boston & LA. Having played with some of the real greats & against the greats like Maris, Mantle, Williams, Musial, etc. I have been blessed to have had this experience.
Correspondence received June, 2010.

Detroit Tigers (1957–1958)
Washington Senators/Minnesota Twins (1960–1962)
Los Angeles Angels (1962–1965)
Houston Astros (1965–1966)
Chicago Cubs (1966)

  1. Love his signature... his cursive... and the fact that he named his father his favorite player.
