Sullivan was a Red Sox workhorse in the mid-1950s. He went 18-13 in 1955, tying for the league lead in wins, and leading in starts (35) and innings pitched (260). That summer, he served up Stan Musial‘s 12th-inning, All-Star Game winning home run. Sullivan was the tallest pitcher in the AL (6’6-1/2″) when he was traded to Philadelphia for the NL’s taller pitcher, 6’8″ Gene Conley, in December of 1960. His 3-16 record in 1961 for the 47-107 Phillies dropped his lifetime record below .500.
