THE HISTORY OF THE COLUMBUS CLIPPERS:
The Columbus Jets pulled up stakes and moved away after the 1970 season. For six years as Jet Stadium deteriorated central Ohio fans did without baseball. Franklin County Commissioner Harold Cooper had led the drive to buy the Jets in 1955. Cooper again pushed for a professional team and a major stadium renovation in 1977. The Columbus Clippers and Franklin County Stadium were born. A multi-million dollar renovation made Franklin County Stadium the jewel of the International League.
The Columbus Clippers were affiliated with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1977-78. The Clippers finished in seventh place both seasons but they developed a lot of young talent. Righty Tim Jones was 15-6 in ?77 and Mike Edwards made All-League honors. Steve Nicosia, Mike Easler and Alberto Lois, Dale Berra, Doe Boyland, Gary Hargis and Eddie Whitson and Don Robinson all played for the 1979 World Champion Pirates.
Joe Altobelli?s Clippers won the following year on the strength of great defense, first baseman Marshall Brant?s bat and one of the strongest pitching staffs in history. Bob Kammeyer won 15 games and Greg Cochran added 12 more, on a staff that had nine hurlers with ERAs less than 3.00. Ken Clay led all hurlers with a 1.96 ERA. The only losing record on the staff belonged to rookie 21-year-old southpaw, Dave Righetti. Frank Verdi?s squad made it three in a row in 1981, powered by first basemen Steve Balboni and Brant, third baseman Tucker Ashford and outfielder Mike Patterson. Pitchers Dave Wehrmeister, John Pacella and Paul Boris all won in double figures.
