Ed Palmquist pitched two years in the majors, in 1960 and 1961. His debut in 1960 at age 27 was impressive, as he posted a 2.54 ERA in 22 games in relief. He had the lowest ERA on the Los Angeles Dodgers squad that season.
Palmquist had been signed by the Dodgers before the 1951 season, and so it was nearly a decade before he came to the majors in 1960.
The book "Sandy Koufax: A Lefty's Legacy" says that Palmquist was known as "Wally Weird", but does not give an explanation as to why.
He later pitched for Daimai in Japan.
