Did Topps vault put out photos of Jim Hibbs in a Reds uni? He was a N.R.I. in 1970

Henry Mitchell

In filling out the roster of my 1966 Baseball Mogul Diamond expansion team the Denver Mammoths I came across the 9 yr minor league career of Panamanian outfielder Henry Mitchell. He had some power and some fine AAA seasons but never a day in the majors. He started out in the Yankees chain and then was with the early 60's Pirates organization. He certainly could have seen some time with the '62 Mets . Here is a nice photo I presume from spring training with the Pirates.

Duncan Desmond Campbell

Here is another Pirate farmhand. Versatile Nicaraguan Duncan Campbell who spent 11 seasons in the Pirates system yet tasted AAA ball for only 56 games. Campbell spent as much time at thirdbase as he did in the outfield and caught 90 games. He was also 1-0 in 17 relief appearances. My kind of utility man. Hit for power and showed some speed in his youth. Campbell had a very fine professional career despite never advancing to the big club. Here is a photo from Nicaragua's Salon de la Fama.

Final Word on Duncan Campbell

I had just about posted this when my internet crashed as I hit the submit button ... On the Salon de la Fama site (Nicaragua's sports hall of fame) it has an article claiming Campbell to be Costa Rican and that he was in fact 3 years older than documented on Baseball Reference. If this is true he didn't playing pro ball until he was 25. The epilogue for Duncan Campbell Utility man with a Catcher's mitt is a sad one. After his playing career ended the Pirates made him a minor league coach. Campbell died in a car accident in Nicaragua in 1969 at age 35.
