Skeeter was a 5'9" 150-lb, light-hitting infielder who, thanks to his fine glove,
WWII, and, perhaps, his father-in-law, managed to play in 12 major league seasons.
He saw much action with the White Sox during the WWII player shortage. Traded to
Detroit after the 1944 season, he married manager Steve O'Neill's daughter, and was
the shortstop for the 1945 World Champion Tigers.
