Walter Esau Beall
Birth: Jul. 29, 1899
District of Columbia
District Of Columbia, USA
Death: Jan. 28, 1959
Prince George's County
Maryland, USA

Major League Baseball Player. Beall was a member of the famed '27 Yankees Murderers row team, although he only appeared in 1 game that season, pitching 1 complete inning. Beall was the type of pitcher who could have been a star had he been able to harness control of his curve ball. In the minors he was highly touted, so much so that the Yankees parted with $50,000 to acquire his services in 1924, this after he won 25 games with Rochester of the International League. Beal never settled down permanaently in New York though, shuffling back and forth from the minors over the next several seasons. His high water mark for games played was in 1926, when he appeared in 26 and had a 2-4 record. Released to the minors after the 1927 season, he made his final major league appearence for the Washington Nats in 1929, going 1-0 in 3 games. He died at his home in Suitland, Maryland in 1959. Upon hearing the news of his death, his old manager, Bucky Harris said "Walt had all the talent in the world to be one of the all-time greats. He just lacked the control."  (bio by: Frank Russo)
