Richard Henry "Dickey" Kerr
Birth: Jul. 3, 1893
Death: May 4, 1963

Major League Baseball Player. He began his career as left-handed pitcher for the Chicago White Sox in 1919. As a rookie he won 13 games during the regular season and won both his starts in the notorious "1919 World Series Black Sox Scandal". During the investigation and trial which lead to the permanent suspensions of eight of his team mates from baseball, Kerr received wide praise for his honest play during the World Series. He ended his career in 1925, with a 53 wins against 34 losses, 235 strikeouts and a .609 winning percentage. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
