I’ve been on a roll lately with getting TTM back in no time. And i’ve been working on my project of “Rookies of the Year” and have hit on allot of them. Mr. Schwall was super cool as he sent this ball back to me in less then 8 days. Don won the 1961 AL Rookie of the Year award, Schwall posted a 15-7 record with 91 strikeouts and a 3.22 earned run average, for a Boston team that
finished 33 games out of first place and ten games under .500. He won his first
six decisions, extended the dazzling first-year stats to 13-2, and won Rookie of the Year honors, beating
out Hall of Fame-bound teammate Carl Yastrzemski. At Fenway Park, on July 31, he pitched three innings in the first All-Star Game tie in major league baseball history (1-1), occurred when the game was stopped in the 9th inning due to rain.

Thanks so much Mr.Schwall for you time and great autograph!!
