George Frederick "Fred" Brickell
Birth: Nov. 9, 1906
Chase County

Death: Apr. 8, 1961
Sedgwick County
Kansas, USA

Major League Baseball Player. Played Major League baseball as an outfielder for 8 seasons (1926 to 1933) with the Pittsburgh Pirates and Philadelphia Phillies. Made a splash as a late season call up in 1926 at age 19, hitting .345 in 24 games. Spend most of his career as a substitute outfielder, especially while with the Pirates, where he played behind such greats as Paul and Lloyd Waner and Kiki Cuyler. In 1927 he helped the Pirates win the National League Pennant, and played in the World Series against the famous “Murderers Row” team from the New York Yankees. He scored a run in two pinch-hitting appearances as his Pirates were swept by New York. In the midst of the 1930 season the Pirates traded him to the Phillies, where he would be a starter for the only time in his career. In 1931, he batted .253 and played in 130 games. The next two years his playing time was significantly smaller (only 45 games in 1932) and the Phillies released him during the 1933 campaign. He finished with career totals of 501 Games Played, 407 Hits, 221 Runs, 6 Home Runs, 131 RBIs and a respectable .281 career Batting Average. His son, Fritz Brickell, played three years of Major League baseball for the Brooklyn Dodgers from 1958 to 1959, and the Los Angeles Angels in 1961. (bio by: Russ Dodge)
