Skeeter Webb

Skeeter was a 5’9″ 150-lb, a light-hitting infielder who, thanks to his fine glove, WWII, and, perhaps, his father-in-law, managed to play in 12 major league seasons. He saw much action with the White Sox during the WWII player shortage. Traded to Detroit after the 1944 season, he married manager Steve O’Neill’s daughter and was the shortstop for the 1945 World Champion Tigers.
