Curt broke with the Orioles in 1967 but did not get a lot of playing time with Don Buford, Paul Blair and Frank Robinson as the outfield regulars.
He did hit .303 in 1969 but only had 89 AB's. He did make the 1969-71 post season teams. Eventually, he was traded to the Brewers in 1972 but came back to Baltimore and retired after the 1974 season.
In late 1976, I saw Curt speak at a dinner in Baltimore. He mentioned that the O's had this switch hitter in the system who would make the team in 1977. He was talking about Eddie Murray.
Curt died in 2010 but I was not aware of that. Curt was a great guy and a popular teammate in one of the best teams of the 20th century.
