You can't get enough McNultyMania!
In our last post we looked at the transaction career of Bill McNulty, and found several holes. We have now found an apparent mistake in a transaction listed on a few internet sites.
Some of them have McNulty being sent as part of a late 1971 deal that sent Adrian Garrett from the Cubs to Oakland for catcher Frank Fernandez, but we have uncovered an article in the Salt Lake Tribune that seperates the McNulty transaction from that trade. Quoting the article:
So Tacoma purchased McNulty AFTER the trade. Also, McNulty didn't play in the regular season for Tacoma, only postseason.....he was in Evansville in 1972.
The Bend (OR) Bulletin of Sept. 3. 1971 has a small recap of one of the playoff games. McNulty homered in a loss...and it mentions his being acquired two days before the playoff series.
McNultyMania running wild!
