Seattle Pilots--Part 2
The Pilots did have a few player who were from the defending champion Detroit Tigers. I think that the Tigers made these players available so they didn't have to give them pay raises. Wayne Comer and Ray Oyler were the Tigers contribution.
I listened to the Pilots on KUJ in Walla Walla, the same station to carry Northwest League games. They were on NBC's game of the week once, that I can recall.
Diego Segui pitched for the Pilots and also for the Seattle Mariners. His son, David, also played for the M's.
The Pilots have a web site with bits and pieces of the teams history. You can find it here
