Death: May 22, 1974

Major League Baseball Player. The left-hander is best known for allowing just six singles in blanking New York before 69,123 fans at Yankee Stadium in the third game of the 1942 World Series. He struck out six and didn't walk any to help St. Louis take the Fall Classic in five games. He broke in with the Cardinals in 1940 and had a 17-7 record with a 2.40 earned run average in 1941. His career was shortened by three years of military service (part of 1943 to part of 1946) and arm problems. He had brief stints with the Boston Braves in 1946 to 1948, but all his victories came with the Cardinals. His lifetime totals were 30-21 with a 2.78 ERA. He was a coach with the New York Mets in 1963. (bio by: Ron Coons)
