Who is this guy?


Do you know this guy? This is not a very hard trivia contest for a Friday morning. I suspect one of you will give the right answer in the comments within about 15 minutes of posting.

BUT -- like Paul Harvey used to say: now for the rest of the story.

This guy once played for the Chicago Cubs.  Like many former Cubs, he went on to greatness after he left the Northside Club. He played for Chicago in 1951.  He hit .239 with 18 RBI and 2 HR. He was a first baseman.

This man also played in the NBA for the 1946 Boston Celtics. He was also drafted by the Chicago Bears, but never played.

This dude was an all around Man's Man.

Do you know him?

Yes, I do but I'll give someone else a chance! I watched him while doing homework and now sometimes catch him on RTV. Still a good show. He sure was good with that rifle!

Why do you have to keep putting Dad's picture up?

Fuzzy Curmudgeon said...

and 'Branded".

I always thought he was second baseman.

Rita said...

What do you do when you're "Branded" and you know you're a man?
