 Biographical Information
Left-hander Roger Bowman won a Pacific Coast League leading 22 games for the Hollywood Stars in 1954, and threw a seven-inning perfect game against the Portland Beavers on the final day of the season to give his team a tie for the pennant with the San Diego Padres, who then won a one game playoff.
Roger, who attended Colgate University, began his career in the New York Giants organization, and in 1950 he won 16 games for the Jersey City Giants leading the International League in strikeouts with 181.
