After Chuck graduated from Seguin High School The MLB Tigers offered him a “pretty good bonus” but he declined, in order to take the U.T. scholarship offer. He was 18-6 in his time at the university, fending off another bonus offer from the Phillies. “I couldn’t accept it,” he said a few years later, “since I promised Mr. Falk that I would fulfill the four-year scholarship.” He was signed by the Chicago Cubs in 1964 out of U.T. He played for the Cubs until 1968, before joining the Pittsburgh Pirates (1969–70), St. Louis Cardinals. (1970), Boston Red Sox (1970), and Toronto Blue Jays (1977).
