Howard Francis Fox
Birth: Mar. 1, 1921
Death: Oct. 9, 1955

Major League Baseball Player. He attended the University of Oregon on a basketball scholarship for a year before signing as a pitcher with the Cincinatti Reds in 1943. His one winning season, 1950, came a year after his 6-19 mark made him the losingest pitcher in the Major Leagues that year. In December 1951 he was sent to the Philadelphia Phillies with catcher Smoky Burgess and second baseban Connie Ryan for catcher Andy Seminick, Eddie Pellagrini, Dick Sisler, and Niles Jordan (a deal that turned out to be very unpopular in Philadelphia). He appeared in 13 games for the Phillies, going 2-7. His last year in the Majors was 1954 when he appeared in 38 games, all in relief. After pitching in the Texas League in 1955, he was stabbed to death while bouncing three young men from the tavern he owned near San Antonio. In 248 Major League games he accrued a lifetime 43-72 Won-Loss record with 6 Saves and a 4.33 Earned Run Average. (bio by: Frank Russo)
