Biographical Information[edit]

Larry Harlow who played from 1975 to 1981, for the Baltimore Orioles and California Angels. He saw his most playing time in 1978 when he took over in center field for an injured Al Bumbry with the Orioles, hitting .243 in 147 games. He did not have much power and was not a high average hitter, his career batting average being .248, but he was a solid defensive outfielder. He was traded to the Angels for C/3B Floyd Rayford early during the 1979 season, and as a result got to face his former team in the 1979 ALCS, when he went 1 for 8. His best year was 1980, when the Angels were beset by injuries and Larry got to play often in the outfield, hitting .276 and scoring 47 runs in 109 games.

He spent one season in Japan in 1982, but hit just .164 in 42 games with the Yakult Swallows.

In 1989, he played for the Fort Myers Sun Sox of the Senior Professional Baseball Association. He hit .307 and stole 10 bases in 67 games. In 1990, Harlow again played for Fort Myers and batted .219 in 22 games when the league folded.
