Bob Watson, George Hendrick, Bob Tolan

All played for Fremont High in Los Angeles.
The Times meanwhile hints that Watson’s scoring MLB’s 1,000,000th run was not verifiable. They gave him among other spiffs a million Tootsie Rolls, which he regifted to the Scouts.

According to his obit in the times N.Y. Watson played with Tolan and Willie Crawford. Whereas as you can see above Tolan and Hendrick squared off in 1972 Series.

Edit to add Don Cherry jazz great briefly attended Fremont high school in Los Angeles but was forced to transfer out because he was cutting class to go play jazz; where is Bobby Watson the jazz musician is from Kansas City and then university of Miami before New York City
