Howie Fox

The 6’3″ Fox attended the University of Oregon on a basketball scholarship for a year before signing with the Reds in 1943. His one winning season, 1950, came a year after his 6-19 mark made him the losingest pitcher in the majors. In December 1951 he was sent to the Phillies with Smoky Burgess in a seven-player deal. After pitching in the Texas League in 1955, he was stabbed to death while bouncing three young men from his tavern near San Antonio.
