Hard to believe these events happened 40 years ago and I don't know how bad Allen was hurting but he did play 3 more un-spectacular years, 2 with the Phillies and his last year with the A's. What's funny is that we had a guy who saved the franchise but by the end of 1975 we needed Bill Veeck to come in and save the franchise.
