Carroll Sembera...'The Pencil'

When I think of Shiner, Texas I think of excellent beer:

and Carrol Sembera:

Carroll was born there on July 26, 1941. Sadly, he died there on June 15, 2005. He made his debut with the Astros in 1965 and played for them until 1967. He then went to play for the Expos, which lasted until April of '70 (five whole months before I entered this world). After that he spent over a decade as a scout for the Mariners.
