Memorial Day 2011 – Remembering Hank Gowdy

May 29, 2011 by  
Filed under News

Hank Gowdy (1889 – 1966) was the first Major League player to enlist during World War I.  Gowdy also enlisted in the military during World War II with the baseball field at Fort Benning bearing his name.  During our last podcast (Episode 58 – Minnesota Twins), Ed Kasputis interviewed Frank Ceresi about this patriot.

Gowdy made his major league debut in 1910 with John McGraw’s Giants.  A year later he was traded to the Boston Braves.  In 1914, Gowdy was the Braves catcher.  On July 4, 1914, the Braves were in last place in the National League.  Two months later, the Braves were in first place and became the first team to win the pennant after being in last place so late in the season.  Gowdy lead the Braves to a World Series sweep over the favored Philadelphia Athletics.

Gowdy has been unsuccessful in 17 attempts to be voted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame.  Gowdy passed away in Columbus, Ohio in 1966.
