Steven A. Biras
Birth: Feb. 26, 1922
East Saint Louis
St. Clair County
Illinois, USA
Death: Apr. 21, 1965
Saint Louis
St. Louis City
Missouri, USA

Professional baseball player. Biras played for the 1944 Cleveland Indians. He singled in both games which represented his entire professional baseball career & had a batting average of 1,000. Assigned to Wilkes-Barre(Eastern) for the 1945 season, Biras refused to report because he was dissatisfied with the contract that had been offered him. The Indians suspended Biras in April 1945 & released him in June 1945. Although he never appeared in any other professional game, he continued to play semi-pro ball in the St. Louis area for many years. He returned to his former career in the shipbuilding industry in St. Louis, Missouri & remained with the St. Louis Shipbuilding Company until the time of his death. (bio by: Connie Nisinger)
