1960 Topps #256 - Dick Brown

On this day in 1935, catcher Dick Brown was born.

Brown came to the White Sox through a trade with the Cleveland Indians, which saw Norm Cash, Bubba Phillips and John Romano go to Cleveland and Minnie Minoso, Don Ferrarese and Jake Striker come to Chicago. Dick only played in sixteen games with the White Sox in 1960 and batted a career low .163. Brown had seven hits, three home runs and five RBI for Chicago. He continued his career with the Detroit Tigers and Baltimore Orioles before being forced to retire due to a brain tumor, which eventually claimed his life at age 35.
