Webster did not have third baseman Jeff Kammer (.394 BA, 9 HR, 42 RBI) in the lineup yesterday. Hope he's okay.

I see he is back in the lineup against SUNY-Cortland in the first World Series game today. Wearing some kind of protection on his left foot/ankle at the plate. Not sure if he always does that.

Webster's losing a DH to an "SAA average" Rhodes team casts some doubts about the Gorloks' #22 ranking this week.

Memorial day article highlighting the careers of 5 surviving WW-2 veterans living in Texas.

Here is the excerpt about Frank Saucier, for whom the ball field at Westminster is named.

https://www.star-telegram.com/sports/mlb/texas-rangers/article230759829.html


Quote
Frank Saucier grew up in Missouri and served as one of the youngest deck officers commissioned by the Navy in World War II. He graduated with a degree in math and physics from Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri, home of the National Churchill Museum, where Churchill delivered his famous “Iron Curtain” speech in 1946. In 1949, Saucier batted a blistering .446 with the Wichita Falls Spudders of the Big State League. In 1950, The Sporting News named Saucier as as Minor League Player of the Year after hitting .343 and winning the Texas League batting title with the San Antonio Missions.

In baseball circles, the Amarillo businessman is known for being replaced by major-league baseball’s smallest player, three-foot-seven-inch tall, 65-pound Eddie Gaedel, who wore the number “1/8” on his jersey when he pinch-hit for Saucier in a publicity stunt in 1951.

When war came again, the owner of the St. Louis Browns, Bill Veeck, a master showman, future Hall of Famer and former Marine, who lost a leg in WWII made an unsuccessful bid to exempt his outfielder from the Navy. Once again, Saucier left baseball to serve in the Korean War for two years and never looked back.

Saucier worked in the finance and oil business until he retired at age 85. Today, the Westminster College baseball field bears his name.
