His major league record was 9-13, with an ERA of 4.54 in 69 game appearances. Before playing professionally, Golden was a standout pitcher for Silver Lake High School and the Mosby-Mack American Legion team. At Silver Lake, his pitching led the Eagles to state baseball championships in both 1953 and 1954. He set and still holds four state high school strikeout records.

Harland Coffman baseball scrapbook

Harland Coffman baseball scrapbook
Date: January 1, 1948-December 31, 1952
This scrapbook documents the minor league baseball career of Topekan Harland Coffman. Coffman was a right-handed pitcher who played for several minor league teams between 1948 and 1952, including Independence (KS), Joplin, Columbus (GA), Omaha, Houston, Rochester, and Columbus (OH). In 158 minor league games, he achieved an overall record of 62-46, with an ERA of 3.19. His best season occurred in 1948 with the Independence Yankees, a club in the Class D Kansas-Oklahoma-Missouri League. Coffman's record that year was 18-5, with an earned run average of 1.94. His ERA was the best among all KOM League pitchers in 1948, and he was a league co-leader in number of wins, sharing the honor with two other pitchers. In 1952, Coffman participated in the St. Louis Cardinals' spring training camp, but did not make the team roster in the regular season. His professional playing days ended when he suffered an arm injury and opted not to have surgery recommended by doctors to extend his baseball career. After his minor league career, Coffman played several years with the semi-pro Topeka Decker Oilers. In the late 1940s and 1950s, the Decker Oilers were a perennial contender for the state semi-pro baseball title, competing each year in the state tournament held in Wichita. Harland's father Vern was the long-time manager of the Decker Oilers. Other family members who played with the team were Harland's brother Burton, and his uncles Ed and Junior Coffman. Harland was a lifelong resident of Topeka, and worked 34 years for the Topeka Capital Journal. He died in 2010 at the age of 81. Digital reproduction of the scrapbook was accomplished through a joint project sponsored by the Kansas Historical Society and the Shawnee County Baseball Hall of Fame.

Houston Buffaloes trip to the Panama Canal Zone
Date: 1951
This set of 16 photos was made in late March 1951 to record the Panama Canal Zone visit by the Houston Buffaloes (or Buffs) minor league baseball team. The team traveled to the Canal Zone to play four exhibition games with U.S. military teams. Two of the games were contested between the Buffs and the Albrook Flyers, a team representing Albrook Air Force Base, where the team stayed during its visit. The Buffs also played one game versus the Army All-Stars, and one game versus the All-Service Stars. The Houston team won three of the four games. Some of the photographs were made during the two games against the Albrook Flyers; the remainder were made during sightseeing excursions or other aspects of the visit. The photos were produced and released by Albrook Air Force Base, and most carry captions. Among the Houston team members making the trip was Topekan Harland Coffman. A right-handed pitcher, Coffman was on the Houston roster only briefly in 1951; he spent most of the 1951 season in Omaha. Coffman's minor league pitching record between 1948 and 1952 was 62-46 and an ERA of 3.19 in 158 games. Digital reproduction of the photographs was accomplished through a joint project sponsored by the Kansas Historical Society and the Shawnee County Baseball Hall of Fame.
