In reply to: Or faced Barry Foote 's message, "Wonder if he ever had a pitching duel against Rollie Fingers." on Thursday, March 09, 10:01:09pm

.... shows that Barry Foote's first two years in MLB were Bill Hands' last two years, and they played in different leagues (before the advent of inter-league play). It is possible they faced each other in spring training - Hands with Minnesota and Foote with Montreal, and both teams trained in Florida - but someone else would have to verify.

By contrast, Fingers and Foote did play in the National League at the same time, and one baseball trivia site said that Foote batted an aggregate 1-for-3 against Fingers. Again, someone else will have to verify.
