Don Werner had a great arm and took a lot of pride in throwing out would-be base stealers.
Werner played professionally for 18 years and got big league time with Cincinnati and Texas. Hall of Famer Tom Seaver threw one no-hitter in his career (June of 1978) and Werner was his catcher.
Don Werner has been a Minor League manager, coach and instructor in his post-playing days. He was in his 23rd year of working in the Minor Leagues when last week the Baltimore Orioles brought him to the Major Leagues as their bullpen coach.
