WSC Vintage: Charlie Uhlir

Card #22 - Charlie Uhlir

Most baseball fans dream of playing in the majors. Very few actually get there. Charlie was born in Chicago in 1912. In 1934, this southpaw leftfielder played fourteen games with the White Sox, the only MLB games of his short career.

Only six of those games were played in the field. Uhlir was nine for nine with chances in the field. In thirty plate appearances, he had four singles, good for a .148 average.

Charlie made his debut on August 3, 1934. The reason for his call up was likely due to the Sox finishing dead last at eighth place that year with a 53-99 record. The standout game for Uhlir was on September 10, 1934, where he went two for five with one RBI in a loss to the Washington Senators.

That's more of a career than most of us ever had. Thanks for sharing!

I'm impressed with anyone who has played in any part of a Major League game. It's much better than I ever did!
