A Short Story about Eddie Gaedel

Welcome to This Date in Random Baseball History. Today, we travel back to August 19, 1951.

With the St. Louis Browns (who would later become the Baltimore Orioles) languishing near the bottom of the Americn League standings, legedary owner Bill Veeck sent 3-foot-7 Eddie Gaedel to the plate as a pinch-hitter in the first inning of a game against the Tigers.

After showing the umpire his official contract, Gaedel walked on four pitches, was replaced by a pinch-runner at first base and received a standing ovation from the crowd.

The shortest player to ever record a Major League plate appearance, Gaedel's jersy --number 1/8-- is preserved in the Hall of Fame today.

Small Sport's Bar named after a short athlete.
