Professional Major League Baseball Player. Nicknamed "Lefty" thanks to his left handed pitch and bat. Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Aber was signed as an amateur free agent by the Indians at age 19 in 1946. He made his major league debut on September 15, 1950, pitching a complete game victory, allowing two runs. However, Aber did not play another game in the big leagues until 1953, he spent the 1951 and 1952 seasons in the minor leagues. He would appear once again for six games for the Indians in 1953, winning one and losing one, before being traded on June 15 to the Tigers in 1953. Here he would blossom, Aber spent the next five years with the Tigers, where he went 2224 in five years. His best statistical season was 1955, in which Aber appeared in 39 games and won 6, losing only 3, and had an earned run average of 3.38. He was then waived by the Tigers, and was picked up by the Kansas City Athletics, for whom he pitched in three games, his final appearance coming on September 11, 1957. He died at the age of 65 in Garfield Heights, Ohio. (bio by: Shock)
