Major League Baseball Player. He played second base for the Detroit Tigers from 1944 to 1945. After serving in the United States Army during World War II, he played for the Tigers for part of the 1944 baseball season. He then completed the entire 1945 season with the club, batting over .300 during their pennant drive in September. He was part of the 1945 World Series champion team, beating the Chicago Cubs the year the famous "curse of the billy goat" originated at Wrigley Field.
