Re: [BaseballNecrology] Purdin, John - Obit
- Purdin was signed by the Tigers out of high school in Lynx, Ohio but before playing professionally went into the US Army (drafted or enlisted?) where he posted a 24-2 record while pitching in Germany. Upon his return, he was scouted and signed by the Dodgers scout Cliff Alexander. Sporting News did a feature on him TSN, 6/17/67, P.31.
(Thank you Brad Sullivan).
