Another Day, Another Sadowski

Ted Sadowski IS part of the family that sent (so far) four members to the Major Leagues. He spent almost his entire career in the Washington/Minnesota system except for a Class A jaunt in 1959, and a trip to Tacoma in the Giants' system in 1964.

No transaction was listed, but this was an easy one to track down, from a heck of a source: Simpson's Leader-Times from Kittanning, Pennsylvania of May 14, 1964...

" The Minnesota Twins optioned third baseman Jay Ward to Tacoma and sold pitcher Ted Sadowski outright to the same club."

Sadowski had started the year in the Twins' system at AAA Atlanta. I'll have to look further into Jay Ward's minor league career.

I think we can safely call this one a sale to the Giants, however.
