Jim Coates was signed by the Yankees as an amateur free agent in 1951. In 1960 Coates went 133 as a spot starter in Casey Stengels much-maligned rotation. Coates was a member of the Yankee team that regained the American League pennant in 1960 but lost to the Pittsburgh Pirates in the World Series in seven games. In 1961 Coates went 115 as a spot starter for perhaps the major leagues' greatest-ever team. Coates relieved Ford in Game Four of the Series and pitched four scoreless innings for the save in a 70 Yankee win. In 1962 Coates went 76 for a Yankee team that repeated as World Champions. Coates was the losing pitcher in Game Four of this Series, which the Yankees won over the San Francisco Giants in seven games. Jim Coates has hand signed this New York Yankees 8x10 Photo.
