Major League Baseball Player. He played in the Major Leagues for six seasons (1941 to 1946) as a pitcher for the New York Giants. A relief specialist, he led the National Leagues in Saves in 1944 and 1945, and in Games Pitched in 1942, 1943 and 1944, and was named to the 1943 National League All-Star Team. His 70 appearances (67 in relief) in 1943 set a Major League record. He had reached the Majors at age 29, much later in his career as most ball players. By the time he was 34 he saw his playing time diminished greatly. Owing to this, in 1946 he jumped to the then outlawed Mexican League, which could afford him more playing time, and was blacklisted from Major League baseball for the move. His career totals were 41 Wins-33 Losses, 302 Games Played, 49 Saves and a 3.47 career Earned Run Average. (bio by: Russ Dodge)
