Well, that was easy: Wondering out loud whatever became of Diz Sutherland, who made a cameo major league appearance as a Washington Senator starting pitcher, quickly brought to light that he's tending bar at the Surrey Inn on Rte. 4, this side of Prince and living in Chesapeake Beach there.

Ol' Diz related over the phone how he won 51 games for the Senators' Charlotte, N.C., farm in the old Tri-State League ("broke Early Wynn's records"), and was called up in September of 1949, the first of those years, and given a start against the St. Louis Browns. He walked six, lasted one inning - "lost about 8-2, but "I was missin' the plate by about an inch - actually I had the best control I ever had."

He hurt his arm the next spring and there went his hopes of making the majors big; moved from the D.C. area to Chesapeake Beach some 12 years ago and is "doing okay considering I broke my nect in two places in an auto wreck last year. Didn't cripple me . . . Oh, and my stepdaughter was the first girl in Calvert County to get a major college full scholarship to play ball; Cindy Bradley, she's at University of South Carolina."
