Haywood Cooper Sullivan (b: December 15, 1930 – d: February 12, 2003 at age 72) was a college and professional baseball player who was a catcher, manager, general manager and club owner in MLB. From 1978 through 1993, he was a general partner in the Boston Red Sox, where he reportedly parlayed a $200,000 investment into a $33 million cash out.
He made it to the big leagues as Boston’s second-string catcher (mainly playing behind Russ Nixon) in 1960 but he batted only .161 and was left exposed in the 1960 MLB expansion draft. The new Washington Senators franchise picked him up, then traded him to the Kansas City Athletics for pitcher Marty Kutyna in December 1960.
Sullivan played for 2½ seasons with the Athletics, and was the club’s semi-regular catcher in 1961 and 1962. For his MLB career, Sullivan batted .226 with 13 home runs in 312 games over all or parts of seven seasons.
