The Negro League baseball history fact for today - Joseph "Bull" Marbury

Born on December 16, 1938 in Leeds, Alabama, Joseph Marbury began his short Negro League baseball career immediately after leaving high school.  Nicknamed “Bull”, he played right field for the Indianapolis Clowns in 1957 and 1958.  His brother, Rendon, played infield for the Birmingham Black Barons in 1956 and was Bull’s teammate with the Clowns in 1958. 
After 1958, “Bull” went back to Alabama to work in the steel industry and play local semi-pro baseball.
What pitcher for the 1954 Indianapolis Clowns became an All Star relieve hurler for the Kansas City Athletics in 1964?
