#13 Steve Barber, Pitcher

Steve Barber came to the Pilots in the expansion draft in 1968 from the Yankees. Because the Pilots weren't that good, Steve went 4-7 with a 4.80 ERA in Seattle. In his career Steve would play for the Orioles, Braves, Yankees, Pilots, Angels, Cubs, and Giants. He had numerous elbow problems and would retire after the 1974 season.

Steve and his wife moved to the Las Vegas area in 1978. Steve worked as a school bus driver. Steve died 18 days short of his 69th birthday, passing on February 4, 2007 due to complications from pneumonia. Steve had his ashes scattered across the southern Nevada desert after his death.
