One of the more popular of the original Colt .45s, Bruce came from the Tigers organization prior to the 1962 season. In five years, he posted a 42-58 record with a 3.78 ERA. Among his highlights were becoming the first 15-game winner in franchise history and winning the last game pitched at Colt Stadium.

Bruce was traded to the Braves after the 1966 season where he pitched the last 12 games of his big league career.
