Final Card: Jim Ollom

Jim Ollom (#91) was signed by the Yankees in 1963. After one season in their organization, he was drafted by Minnesota, and spent the next 3 seasons as a starting pitcher in the Twins farm system, finally making his major-league debut in September 1966.

Ollom spent the entire 1967 season in the majors, and it would be his last season in the show. He appeared in 21 games, pitching 35 innings. Both of these stats ranked him 6th among pitchers named Jim on the 1967 Twins' staff.



Following the 1967 season, Ollom split each of the next 2 seasons with the Twins' minor league teams in Charlotte (AA) and Denver (AAA) as both a starter and reliever.

Welcome back, Jim.

An interesting thing about this guy: he is only one of two pitchers to win 20 games in the PCL since 1958. The other was a Brewer farmhand named Mark Bomback in 1979.
