Oscar "Happy" Felsch
Birth: Aug. 22, 1891
Death: Aug. 17, 1964

Major League Baseball Player. Born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, he was an outfielder making his debut with the Chicago White Sox on April 14, 1915. For six seasons, he played with the Chicago White Sox (1915-20) and was a member of the White Sox World Series Championship in 1917. In 1919, Felsch was approached by gamblers to join a group of White Sox players that planned to lose the World Series. He was reluctant to go along with the plan at first but then eventually did because of the monetary payments. For his part in the fix, he received $5,000 and after the Black Sox Scandal broke in late 1920, Felsch, along with seven other players, was made permanently ineligible for organized baseball by Commissioner Landis. He ended his career with a record of 825 hits, 38 homeruns, 446 runs batted in and a .293 batting average. He died of a liver ailment at age 72 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In the movie "Eight Men Out" (1988), Felsch was portrayed by actor Charlie Sheen. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
