“I was well into my warmup when they said the game would be delayed,” Bane said. “I didn’t care, but Kitty [Jim Kaat] went crazy. He was yelling, ‘You can’t do this to the kid. He’s already loose, sweated up.’ ”
The start was pushed back, and Bane didn’t rattle in front of the roaring crowd. He used his curveball and assortment of angles in his delivery for this pitching line: seven innings, three hits, one run, three walks, three strikeouts.
He was trailing 1-0 to the Royals, the Twins took a 3-1 lead in the bottom of the eighth, and then Ray Corbin gave up four in the ninth and the Twins lost 5-4.
Bane made five more starts and a total of 23 appearances as a rookie. He got back to the big leagues for four starts in 1975 and 15 in 1976, and then became a journeyman, including a couple of years in the Mexican League.
“The Rangers ruined David Clyde by bringing a high school kid right to the big leagues,” Bane said. “That wasn’t the case with me. I was what I was.”
And he is what he is as a scout. Mike Trout. A fine notation on a résumé.
