Biographical Information[edit]

Pitcher Arthur Vicital played in the minor leagues from 1951 to 1953. He began his career with a 20-8 record and a 3.10 ERA in 36 games for the Fargo-Moorhead Twins in 1951, prompting the San Antonio Missions to take him in the 1951 Rule V Draft. He did not play for them, rather he joined the Scranton Miners in the St. Louis Browns system (the Missions were part of the Browns system when they claimed Vicital). He fell to 7-15, 3.72 in 30 games (20 starts) that year, though he hit .333 in 42 at-bats. He was 4-10 with a 5.36 ERA for the York White Roses in his third and final season.

Overall, Vicital went 31-33 with a 3.82 ERA.
