Brother of Terry
Claimed by Boston from Pittsburgh (AHL) in Inter-League Draft, June 5, 1956. Missed entire 1958-59, 1959-60, 1961-62, 1962-63 seasons playing professional baseball in the Milwaukee Braves farm system.
We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.
