Biographical Information[edit]

Playing for the Philadelphia Phillies, Howie Bedell ended Don Drysdale's record scoreless innings streak of 58 consecutive innings in 1968 with a 5th-inning pinch-hit sacrifice fly on June 8th of that year. It was his only RBI of the year and he played his final big league game less than one month later. He saw more substantial action in his other big league season, with the 1962 Milwaukee Braves, batting .196 in 58 games.

After his playing days, Howie was a Kansas City Royals coach in 1984 and a member of the Seattle Mariners staff in 1988. In 1990-1991, he was the Farm Director for the Cincinnati Reds.
