Dave also pitched nine years in the minors, of which parts of five were with the Rochester Red Wings. His record during seven seasons in AAA ball was 36-29.

Through 2019, he is the only major leaguer born in Clay, WV. He attended Spencer (WV) High School, a school that Kane Davis later attended.

"The first-place BALTIMORE Orioles . . . also had luck with a new face. Dave Vineyard, a right-hander from Rochester, put the finishing touch on a glittering three-game run by Oriole pitchers with a two-hitter over the Senators." - Sports Illustrated, August 3, 1964 issue
