Biographical Information[edit]

Al Barillari played in the minors from 1944-1956, most notably with the Baltimore Orioles and was later also a minor league manager. As a player, Barillari began as a pitcher and won 15 games for the Orioles one year. By 1948, though, he had moved to playing the field full-time. He also spent time as a Cleveland Indians scout.

Away from the diamond, Barillari was also an NBA referee for a time.
