Bryant spent 45 years in baseball as a pitcher, coach, and minor league manager.
.266 lifetime hitter, he won his own game on August 28, 1937 with a 10th inning
grand slam. He went 19-11 for the 1938 pennant-winning Cubs, leading the NL in strikeouts
(and walks). In his World Series
start in Game Three, he pitched almost five hitless
innings before Joe Gordon
started a Yankee stampede with a home run. Bryant's career
was ruined by arm trouble the next year.
