baseball bat
Edward Carl Gaedel (June 8, 1925 – June 18, 1961) stood at 3 feet 7 inches tall. It was Sunday, August 19, 1951. Gaedel played for the St. Louis Browns and appeared at the plate in a double header against the Detroit Tigers, his number was “1/8?. Pitching that day for the Tigers was Bob Crain. Gaedel was instructed to go up to the plate and not lift the bat off his shoulders, to make sure he drew a walk. With a strike zone of only 1 and 1/2?, four pitches later he was walked. Bowing twice to the crowd as he trotted down to first base. He also received a standing ovation for his efforts. That was Gaedel’s only appearance ever as a Major League Player. Later that week MLB took Gaedel out of the record books, due to the American League President saying Veeck (Browns Owner) was making a mockery of the game. Gaedel was than re-listed in the record books one year later.
