Baseball’s analogy of Pete Gray can only be phenomenal. Gray lost his right arm as a child in a train accident but overcame the handicap to hit .333 and steal 68 bases for the Memphis Chicks in 1944. Voted the Associations Most Valuable Player.
The next year he was called up by the St. Louis Browns and batted .218 in his lone season with the club. The return of other players from World War II made Gray’s big league career brief.
