Eddie Miksis

Miksis was one of many teenagers to make the majors during WWII, arriving a few months shy of his 18th birthday. A utility man with every other team he played for, Miksis was a regular only on the second-division Cubs in 1951-56.

As a Dodger in Game Four of the 1947 WS, pinch-running for Pete Reiser, he scored the winning run from first base when Cookie Lavagetto‘s two-out ninth-inning double ended Bill Bevens‘s bid for the first WS no-hitter.
