Major League baseball player for the Chicago White Sox in 1935-36. Arguably could have been one of the greatest players of all time, but was known for going "AWOL" from the team. The club tracked him down and found him near his home fishing. After returning him to the team, he later left again and they released him from his contract. He later played in the minor leagues for the Texarkana Bears, where he was one of the better players. His major league career batting average was .268 with 9 home runs after only 388 at bats in 128 games. His slugging average was .415. By contrast, it took Babe Ruth 4 seasons to hit 9 home runs with 361 at bats in 166 games.
