1953 Topps Project - Tony Bartirome
After the '52 season Tony was drafted into the army, and served for 2 years. He would return to the Pirates minor league system in 1955, and would bounce around professional baseball for a few more years, but he never saw another Major League at-bat. Bartirome did stay involved in the game of baseball for many more years, as a longtime trainer with the Pirates. He had a few brief coaching stints as well before finally calling it a career. Interestingly, Tony has the distinction of never having grounded into a double play. Not too bad for 124 games played.
