Best Seasons: Darold Knowles - 1969.

Coming down the home stretch on T.R. Sullivan's list of the Top 50 Seasons in Rangers History. Today Darold Knowles comes in at number 43 in recognition of his 1969 season.

As you can see from his 1969 Strat-O-Matic card, Knowles was a reliever, and a good one at that. He started no games in 1969 so all of his 53 appearances were out of the bullpen. In 84.1 innings pitched he posted a 2.25 ERA and a 1.233 WHIP. He struck out almost twice as many as he walked with 59 K's and 31 walks.

Darold ended the season with 13 saves. He also got selected to the All-Star team for the only time in his career.
