Hadn't really heard much about him. Did find one interesting thing that always tickles me about the 40's and 50's.

November 20, 1957: Traded by the Kansas City Athletics with Billy Martin, Mickey McDermott, Tom Morgan, Lou Skizas, and Tim Thompson to the Detroit Tigers for a player to be named later, Bill Tuttle, Jim Small, Duke Maas, John Tsitouris, Frank House, and Kent Hadley.


Got to love 13 player trades. ;-D

He was listed in the top 20 or so players with the highest Homerun% I think it was 5.7%. What I thought was interesting is some of the power hitters he was better than....and I'd never heard of this guy :-?

Gus Zernial was an okay defensive outfielder and a very good power hitter. He had a a couple of very good years in the PCL. He was also linked romatically to marilyn monroe.
