U L Washington was a Major League Baseball player with the Kansas City Royals ( 1977 - 1984 ), Montreal Expos ( 1985 ), and Pittsburgh Pirates ( 1986 - 1987 ). Washington, who was well known for having a toothpick in the corner of his mouth at all times, was not using initials (U.L.) in his first name, but rather his given legal name!

The Kansas City Royals Baseball Academy was part of the player development system for the Kansas City Royals during the early 1970s. Their goal of the Royals Academy was to develop quality athletes into major-league-caliber ballplayers for the franchise and U L Washington was one-of-three students who made it to the majors? Do you know who the other two were? [ Answer | Answer ]
