John Curtis – 1973 Topps #143

John Duffield Curtis (born March 9, 1948 in Newton, Massachusetts) is a former Major League Baseball pitcher. He was originally drafted by the Cleveland Indians in the first round of the 1966 Major League Baseball Draft out of Smithtown High School in Smithtown, New York, but did not sign, choosing instead to attend Clemson University. After two seasons at Clemson, he was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in the first round of the secondary phase of the 1968 Major League Baseball Draft, and signed with the club. Curtis lives in Long Beach, California with his wife, Mary Ann. Upon retiring, Curtis began freelance writing articles for the San Diego Union-Tribune, Boston Globe, San Francisco Chronicle and Sports Illustrated.[8] After a nearly twenty year absence from the game, he returned to coach the Long Beach Breakers during the two year run of the independent Western Baseball League (2001 & 2002).
