Major League Baseball Player. Played Major League baseball as an outfielder for 6 seasons (1936-1939, 1941-1942) for the Boston Red Sox and the Cleveland Indians. A back-up through his short career, he broke into the Majors in 1936, playing 15 games for the Red Sox. The next year he played in 54 games, which would be his career high, batting .288. Played in 1 game for the Sox in 1939 before being released. The onset of World War II, and the drain of players into military service allowed him to briefly return, this time with the Indians, playing in 4 games in 1941 and 40 games in 1942 before his career was over. His career numbers were 129 Games Played, 73 Hits, 43 Runs, 7 Home Runs, 184 RBIs, and a career .227 Bating Average. (bio by: Russ Dodge)
