RIP - Ed Barnowski

Ed Barnowski, an Orioles' prospect who had a few cups of coffee in '65 and '66 but who could not crack the excellent Baltimore pitching staffs of that era, passed away on October 17, 2017 at age 74.

Barnowski pitched for Syracuse University, then was a starting pitcher in the Orioles' minor leagues every season from 1963 to 1969, but only saw big-league action in 6 games, all in relief (4 in Sept '65, 2 in Sept '66).

After his playing career, he was the general manager for the Orioles' AAA Rochester Red Wings for a few seasons.
