A storybook season in 1947 established him as an icon in Sequoia baseball lore as the leader of one of the school’s most memorable teams. His statistics are surreal: a .557 batting average; a 9-0 pitching record; unanimous selection to the All-SPAL team, and designation as the league’s Most Valuable Player. Following selection for two all-star games (and performing in Seals Stadium), he signed with the San Jose Red Sox in 1948. The following year, he hit .321 for Medford, Ore., before joining the Pirates organization in Waco, Tex. spring training. Assigned to Bartlesville, Okla., he labored for three months before abandoning a professional baseball career, opting for semi-pro action with the San Carlos Grays. Following Army service in Korea, Milt began a lengthy tenure in management with Pacific Bell and currently resides in Reno.
