Major League Baseball Player. The right-hander was sometimes effective as a rookie spot starter and long reliever for the 1944 world champion St. Louis Cardinals. However, when star players began returning home from World War II, his days were numbered. He was 7-9 with a 3.39 earned run average in 1944 and 3-3 with a 5.15 ERA the following year. He was sold to the Philadelphia Phillies on Feb. 5, 1946 and finished his career with them in 1947. Lack of control was his biggest problem as he walked 189 batters while yielding 344 hits in 388 innings. He finished with a 15-22 lifetime record and a 4.24 ERA. (bio by: Ron Coons)
