Wiki

Eddie Gene Fisher (born July 16, 1936 in Shreveport, Louisiana) was an American professional baseball player. He played in Major League Baseball as a relief pitcher for the San Francisco Giants (1959–61), Chicago White Sox (1962–66 and 1972–73), Baltimore Orioles (1966–67), Cleveland Indians (1968), California Angels (1969–72) and St. Louis Cardinals (1973).

Fisher led Pacific Coast League pitchers with 239 innings while playing for the Tacoma Giants in 1960. His minor league record from 1958 to 1961 was 47-28 (.627) with a 3.23 ERA in 93 games (632 innings pitched).

Fisher's best pitch was the knuckleball, and in 1963-1966 he worked out the White Sox bullpen with fellow flutterball specialist Hoyt Wilhelm.
