The Albany Park athlete was a left handed Allstar centerfielder for Midland Motors and Fewer Boilers. Outstanding defensive player and one of the fastest players in the game. In the service he played ball with the best baseball players in the game. This encouraged him to tryout for the White Sox. They told him to give up softball, work on his swing and come back next year. He said he would make more money playing 16″ and never went back to tryout. Since Deceased.
