Professional Baseball Player. He had pitched for Harvard, was signed by the New York Yankees in 1932 and made just one start, a complete game win. He pitched 62 innings for the Yankees in 1933 and pitched in just one game for New York in 1934. After 3 years with the Yankees he had 5 wins, 3 losses, 82 innings pitched, 31 strikeouts and a 3.73 average. He was the last living New York Yankee from Babe Ruth's final championship season of 1932. He had left baseball when his wife-to-be's father told him that he didn't want a baseball player for a son-in-law. Following his baseball career, he established himself as a leading businessman in Boston. In World War II, he was a flight deck officer on the USS Intrepid and was awarded the Bronze Star for his efforts. Fort Devens, Massachusetts, is named for his great uncle Charles Devens Jr. who fought in the Civil War and was a Union General. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
