Tom Saffell, an outfielder who played parts of four big league seasons from 1949-1955 with the Pittsburgh Pirates and Kansas City Athletics, passed away last week. He was 91.
Saffell was the president of the Gulf Coast Rookie League for 30
years from 1979-2009, working until he was 89 years old. That capped a
career in baseball that started almost 70 years prior in 1941 in the
Class D Newport Canners of the Appalachian League.
