Major League Baseball Player. The 6-foot-2 left-handed pitcher appeared in a total of four games in 1941-43 with Brooklyn. He was 3-1 with the Dodgers when he was traded on June 6, 1944 to the Chicago Cubs for second baseman Eddie Stanky. Chipman was 12-10 in 1944 and 4-5 with a 3.50 earned run average when the Cubs won the 1945 National League pennant, but he pitched only one-third of an inning against Detroit in the World Series. He remained with the Cubs until he was sold on April 18, 1950 to Boston. He went 12-11 for the Braves the next three seasons. He was 51-46 lifetime with a 3.72 ERA and 29 complete games in 87 starts. (bio by: Ron Coons)
