Major League Baseball Player. He played 5 seasons (1938 to 1942) as a 2nd baseman with the St. Louis Cardinals. Mostly appearing as a late season call up his first three seasons, he established himself as the Cardinals regular 2nd baseman in 1941. In 1942 he contributed to the Cards' National League pennant-winning season, and he appeared as a pinch-runner in the World Series, which the Cardinals won 4 games to 1 over the New York Yankees. He was drafted by the military after the 1942 season and suffered a serious leg injury while playing for the service in a semi-pro baseball game. This injury kept him from resuming his major-league career. He later briefly managed teams in the minor leagues. His career totals were 264 games played, 240 hits, 125 runs, 4 home runs and a .263 career batting average.
