Jim Delsing from the Chronology

Sep 24, 1954 - The Tigers stall the Indians pennant clinch topping the Tribe 6-4. Ted Gray is the winner over Bob Lemon. Jim Delsing and Ray Boone homer for Detroit while Cleveland's George Strickland hits his first homer since early in the season.
Aug 14, 1952 - In a major trade the Tigers send 5 players to the Browns including pitchers Dick Littlefield and Marlin Stuart slugger Vic Wertz and OF Don Lenhardt. Detroit receives OF Jim Delsing and 3 pitchers Ned Garver Dave Madison and Bud Black. The nod to Detroit on this swap as Delsing will start in CF and Garver will be a reliable starter. In 1951 Garver became the century's only 20-game winner with a team losing 100 games. He also led the Brownies with a .305 batting average.
Aug 19, 1951 - In his most interesting promotional stunt Bill Veeck signs a 3'7" midget Eddie Gaedel who goes to bat wearing the number 1?8 in the first inning of the nightcap with the Tigers.

Tomorrow the Yanks beat the Browns 7-5 with Ferrick and Ostrowski starring in relief.
