Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"(Curt) Barclay, although 25, is a polished pitcher with professional manners and know-how. He has noteworthy control of curve balls of various speeds, and is a master at brushing back the too-eager batsman." - The Sporting News (April 17, 1957, Joe King)

Curtis Cordell Barclay was a Major League Baseball player who pitched with the New York Giants ( 1957 ) and San Francisco Giants ( 1958 - 1959 ). Curt, his nickname, grew up in Chicago and signed with the Giants in 1952, after attending the University of Oregon , where he played and excelled in both baseball and basketball. How good was he?

"Six-foot-three Curt Barclay turned down a contract offer from the NBAs Boston Celtics to sign with the Giants in 1952. He made a steady rise through the Giants' minor league system, winning 19 games with class-B Danville in '54, 16 with class-A Sioux City in '55, and 15 with triple-A Minneapolis in '56. Barclay joined the Giants' starting rotation as a rookie in '57, going 9-9 with a team-best 3.44 ERA in 183 innings. Barclay began the '58 season in San Francisco, beating the Dodgers in relief, in the third game of the season at Seals Stadium. However, a shoulder injury forced the Giants to send Barclay to triple-A Phoenix two weeks later, Curt finishing the year in the Coast League, going 12-8 with a 3.91 ERA." - Author Steve Bitker in The Original San Francisco Giants: The Giants of '58 (Simon & Schuster, 02/28/2012, Curt Barclay , Page 184

Curt Barclay served in the United States Army during the Korean War and was asked while stationed in Fort Jackson (South Carolina) to complete a player questionnaire. He shared one of his most unusual experiences in baseball, writing that he was, "robbed of a no hitter when the base umpire was watching for a play at second, when man who hit ball was out by 20 ft. at first."
