1953

Quite a few men dropped off from lack of support, and I’m sorry to see them go. They were all fine players, just not the cream of the crop. So long, Harlond Clift, Pepper Martin, Buddy Myer, Dick Redding, Ben Taylor, Lloyd Waner, Hack Wilson and Wild Bill Wright, and The Immortal, Eddie Rommel, drops after 15 years.
