 Biographical Information
He is the brother of Dennis O'Toole.
O'Toole's stellar 19 win season in 1961 was a major factor in the Red's surprise winning of the National League pennant that season. He was matched against Whitey Ford in both his starts in the World Series that year, and he lost both games. He continued to pitch effectively for several years after that, but his career ended prematurely at age 30 due to a shoulder injury.
