Bubba was platooned with Billy Goodman who wasn't a bad hitter, IIRC he won a batting title with the BoSox in the early 50s.
Us oldtimers will remember when Nellie and Billy hit HRs in the bottom of the ninth against the Twins in 1961 to pull out a victory. I remember Brickhouse going crazy and said that the odds were around a million to one that those 2 would hit HRs to win a game.

And it was Don Wells in the booth with Elson, Wells left the Sox in 1961 to join the expansion Los Angeles Angels.
