Tom Baer

Tom Baer

c. 1919


1937-38 (High School)
1938-39 St. John's University (College) Freshmen
1939-40 St. John's University (College)
1940-41 St. John's University (College)
1945-46 St. John's University (College)
1946-47 Jersey City Atoms (ABL)

Tom Baer is mentioned in news wire reports in 1940 and 1941 as being a diminutive 5'3 guard. Later in 1946, he is listed in a wire photo as being tall. St. John's says this is the same player, so either he grew a lot while serving in World War 2, or the photo in 1946 has him mis-identified.

Possibly Thomas Baer (5/6/18-12/15/98)
