RIP - Ernie Bowman

Ernie Bowman, an infielder for the Giants from 1961-63, passed away on August 4, 2019 at age 84.

Bowman played in the minors every year from 1956-69, except for 1962 and 1963. Those were the seasons he stayed with the Giants all year, backing up at 3 infield positions.

He was involved in multi-player deals in 1964 (to the Braves) and 1965 (to the Mets), but never played in the majors after September 1963, even though he had a card in the 1966 Topps set.
