A Part of Baseball History: August 19, 1951 - Eddie Gaedel, a 65-pound, 3-foot-7 midget, makes his first and only plate appearance as a pinch-hitter for Frank Saucier of the St. Louis Browns. Gaedel, wearing No. 1/8, walks on four pitches by Detroit Tigers pitcher Bob Cain and is taken out for pinch-runner Jim Delsing. The gimmick by the Browns owner Bill Veeck is later outlawed.
Frank Saucier (second row center) was in
charge of Beach Party 76 on the USS Barnstable

"Frank was a gem as our officer and a great ball player."
