Galen Cisco

Co-captain and fullback for Ohio State’s 1957 national collegiate football champs, the curveballing Cisco had little success with Boston and was released on waivers to the 1962 Mets. In the longest game, by time, in ML history (the 7:23, 23-inning Mets-Giants marathon of 5/31/64), he worked the last nine innings, shutting out San Francisco the first eight, then yielding two runs to lose 8-6. In three-plus years with the Mets, he was 18-43. He later became a respected ML pitching coach.
