"I would get out the big hitters like Mantle and Maris and (Harmon) Killebrew because they were low ball hitters. The good high, fastball hitters like Richie Ashburn were the type of guys that hit me pretty good." - comment from Dan Pfister, from an article in the South Florida Sun Sentinel, July 28, 1989 
Dan Pfister pitched four years in the big leagues, all with the Kansas City Athletics. In his busiest year, 1962, he appeared in 41 games, of which 25 were starts. He was second on the team in number of starts. During his time in the majors, he several times took a no-hitter past the 5th inning.
Dan had six seasons in the minors, perhaps most notably with the 1960 Shreveport Sports, for whom he went 13-5, before coming to the majors near the end of the following season.
He had an elbow injury that ended his time in pro ball.
He served as a fireman for many years after his pro baseball career. He played serious softball, including with a team that has been national champion.
