    Some other interesting facts about Bill Virdon:

    Virdon was originally signed by the Yankees and then traded to the Cardinals for Enos Slaughter.
    Virdon was the 1955 NL ROY with the Cardinals before being traded to the Pirates in 1956 while in the midst of a sophomore slump.
    Virdon is the all-time winningest manager in Astros' history with 544 wins.

    So sorry to hear that. I remember Demeter when he played for Tigers.
