John Andrew Beazley
Birth: May 25, 1918
Nashville
Davidson County
Tennessee, USA
Death: Apr. 21, 1990
Nashville
Davidson County
Tennessee, USA

Johnny Beazley began his baseball career in the minor leagues in 1937-1941, when he went to pitch for the St. Louis Cardinals. In the 1942 World Series against the New York Yankees, Beazley pitched two winning games that led to the Cardinals win of the series that year. While serving in the Air Force during WWII, Beazley did not warm up properly before participating in an exhibition game and suffered an injury to his arm that his career never recovered from. He did play for the Boston Braves from 1947-49. Following his baseball career, Beazley became a very succesful businessman in his hometown of Nashville, Tennessee, owning the Fallstaff Beer distributorship and serving as a city councilman. Inducted into the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame in 1977, Beazley retired to Florida through much of the 70s and 80s and returned home to Nashville, where he died of prostate cancer in April of 1990. (bio by: Sharon Smith)
