Major League Baseball Player. The right-handed pitcher compiled a 95-103 record during his 12 years in the major leagues. He made his debut with St. Louis in 1939 and was 17-13 with 18 complete games and 257 innings pitched when the Browns won their only American League pennant in 1944. In Game 3 of the World Series, he stopped the Cardinals on seven hits for a 6-2 victory. He also pitched two scoreless innings of relief in Game 6 as the Cards wrapped up the title. On November 17, 1947, he was traded along with shortstop Vern Stephens to the Boston Red Sox for Jim Wilson, Roy Partee, Al Widmar, Ed Pellagrini, Joe Ostrowski, Pete Layden and $310,000. Kramer paid dividends with an 18-5 season with 205 innings pitched in 1948, but the Red Sox lost the pennant in a playoff with Cleveland. He closed out his career with the New York Giants and New York Yankees in 1951.  (bio by: Ron Coons)
