I am not sure if Richard Seminoff and Richard actually met, but Dick was drafted out of UofA and became a pitcher in 1969. He said he was one of the most frequently traded pitchers in triple A. The time frame is right, and I found some thought that they might have crossed paths. Unfortunately Dick passed away from Alzheimer's on Friday, and I thought reaching out will help your familly and mine. He also was a biggggg Connie Mack coach for the boys.
