Happy Reds birthday, Milt Wilcox!
April 20, 1950
Milt Wilcox only spent two seasons with the Reds, but collected a playoff win as a rookie in a three-inning relief appearance against the Pirates in the 1970 NLCS. More than a decade later, reunited with manager Sparky Anderson, Wilcox again found himself on the winning end in the postseason. He collected victories against the Royals in the 1984 ALCS, and against the Padres in the World Series. In 2005, Wilcox started a new venture with his son called Ultimate Air Dogs, described as “the premier dock jumping organization in the country.”
