Alex Kampouris

The Chicago Hellenic Society, hungering for a countryman to honor in 1937, assembled at Wrigley Field one day to salute the Reds’ second baseman. Kampouris was given a car and extolled before the game, then proceeded to commit three errors in one inning. Kampouris hit .316 in 16 games for the Dodgers in 1941 but never hit better than .249 in any other season.
