Where Are They Now? : TED SIZEMORE

Times staff writer David W. Myers catches up with former Dodgers and Angels

The Dodgers switched Sizemore from catcher to the infield and he was voted rookie of the year in 1969 as a shortstop-second baseman. He went to St. Louis after the 1970 season in a trade for Richie Allen, came back to Los Angeles for the 1976 season, and retired in Boston in 1980 with a .262 lifetime average.

Sizemore, 49, is an executive at Rawlings Sporting Goods in St. Louis. He is in charge of supplying major league baseball with most of its equipment--including more than 700,000 baseballs a year--and is coordinating the sport's growth efforts overseas. An avid golfer with homes in Missouri and Palm Springs, he is also a director of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
