 The Seattle Pilots (64-98) only existed in 1969 before moving to Milwaukee where they became the Brewers. The Pilots had a number of players that either had played in Minnesota or would play in Minnesota including Don Mincher, Rich Rollins, Ron Clark, Danny Walton, Sandy Valdespino, Mike Marshall, and Garry Roggenburk. Tom Kelly was a Pilots 8th round draft pick in 1968. The Seattle Pilots theme song was so different from any other I have ever heard and I had to put it out here.
