Biographical Information[edit]

Dick Hall had a successful sixteen-year career in the major leagues. He was with the Baltimore Orioles teams that won the 1966 World Series and the 1970 World Series, as well as the teams that went to the World Series in 1969 and 1971. He first came up as an outfielder with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1952, but was transformed into a pitcher after three seasons of hitting .215 with no power.

As a pitcher, he was known for his outstanding control: in his last 7 seasons, he issued only 23 unintentional walks in 462 innings.

After his playing days he worked as a certified public accountant.

His family moved around a lot when he was growing up. He barely stayed in his birth city of St. Louis, MO, before going to Albany, NY, then to Bergen County, New Jersey and finally to Massachusetts. He is the most recent major leaguer to come out of Swarthmore College, where he was a five-sport letterman (baseball, football, basketball, track and soccer).
