Mark Christman

The older brother of NFL quarterback and TV football announcer Paul Christman, Mark was an ardent Cardinal fan who, spurned by Cardinal scouts, signed with Detroit but played most of his career with the Browns. A light hitter but a steady fielder, in his first year as a regular he led AL third basemen with a .972 fielding average in 1944. His career-high 83 RBI that year was more than twice his total for any other season. Sold to Washington in 1947, he played two seasons as the regular Senator shortstop.
