BIO: Curtis Charles Flood was born in 1938 in Houston, TX and died in 1997 in Los Angeles, CA. He played major league baseball from 1956 to 1971 as outfielder for the Cincinnati Reds, St. Louis Cardinals and the Washington Senators, appeared in the 1964, 1967 and 1968 World Series, and was selected 3 times as an All-Star. Flood spent over a decade with the St. Louis Cardinals and was known for his defensive abilities. He did not commit a single error in 1966 and had a 223 consecutive game errorless streak during his career. However, he is best known for his challenge of baseball's reserve clause, which eventually opened the door to free agency. After his playing career ended, Flood was a radio broadcaster for the Oakland Athletics in 1978. From 1989 to 1990, he was the Commissioner of the Senior Professional Baseball Association.
