 Biographical Information
Ray Semproch was signed by the Philadelphia Phillies as an amateur free agent in 1951, but he did not make his big league debut until many years later - on April 15, 1958, against the Cincinnati Redlegs. The year prior, he'd gone 12-4 with a 2.64 ERA for the Triple-A Miami Marlins.
In his first major league game, he gave up a hit and a walk, struck out two, and earned the win in a three inning relief appearance. That year, he went 13-11 as a rookie for the Phillies. The biography at www.baseballlibrary.com says he was leading the league at mid-season with 11 victories.
On November 28, 1960, he was drafted by the Washington Senators in the 1960 Rule V Draft (he and John Gabler were the first two players acquired by the "new" Washington Senators of 1961, prior to the expansion draft).
He closed out his major league career in the inaugural season of the Los Angeles Angels.
After baseball he worked for many years as bar manager in his brother's Italian restaurant.
