FAVORITE BRAVES PLAYERS OF THE 1970'S
#32 PAT JARVIS
ATLANTA BRAVES 1966-1972
Pat was a pretty good starter for the Braves during the late 60's and early 70's, including a 16-win season in 1970. He also had a cool nickname, "The Little Bulldog" and often fell off the pitching mound after his follow through, which was always entertaining. He is also known in the Atlanta area for becoming Sheriff Pat Jarvis of Dekalb County after his playing days were over.
On the negative side, the only film of the '69 Mets-Braves playoff series I could find on Youtube is the one lollipop pitch that Pat served up to the Mets Wayne Garrett for a home run.
This just in: Pat was later sentenced to prison on corruption charges in his running of the Dekalb County jail. He currently runs an organic nursery in Rutledge, Ga.
