The 6'6 athlete was one of the many youngsters signed during World War 2 to play baseball with the diluted talent pool. He was 17 when he made his debut for the Phillies' farm team in Wilmington in 1945, and would pitch over the next few seasons. He never got higher than Class A. During the off-season in this period, he would place pro and semi-pro basketball, including three seasons in the ABL.
