Dick Drott

When Dick Drott won 15 games for the seventh-place Cubs in 1957, he seemed headed for stardom. He was wild enough to lead the league in walks, but his fastball intimidated batters at first. Then, his career floundered because of arm problems and he passed to the expansion Houston team in the draft.

On April 27 of his rookie season, Drake was ejected from a game for borrowing a wheelchair from a crippled fan and wheeling fellow flake Moe Drabowsky to first base after Drabowsky was hit on the foot by a pitch.
