Senators Saturday - Tom Brown, 1964.
Tom was assigned to double A York for the 1964 season. He appeared in 59 games and made 243 plate appearances. He hit just .217 but did manage a .346 on-base percentage thanks to the 40 walks he worked.
It looked like baseball wasn't Tom Brown's sport. That's probably why he signed with the NFL's Green Bay Packers. By the fall of 1964 Brown was taking the field with the Packers. He would play just over five seasons in the NFL - all but one game with Green Bay. During that time he played in two Super Bowls. That's more post-season action than he would have seen with the Senators.
