    Future Gas House Gang Coach Clyde “Buzzy” Wares gets traded for a Stadium and Dizzy Dean

    Future Gas House Gang Coach Clyde “Buzzy” Wares gets traded for a Stadium and Dizzy Dean

    On March 28, 1913, the St. Louis Browns make an unusual “trade,” sending infielder Clyde “Buzzy” Wares to the Montgomery Rebels a minor league team in exchange for the rental of a stadium. The Montgomery Rebels will allow the Browns to use their stadium during spring training-rent free. he Southern Association Class-A team will return the 26 year-old infielder to St. Louis later in the season. He will debut on September 15, 1913   vs. BOS  and he goes 0-1. Wares will play part of the 1913 and 1914 season in St Louis and hang around in the minors until 1920.
    The Browns didn’t tell Wares about the deal until the last minute. When the manager called Buzzy into his office on the last day of spring training, Wares thought it was to tell him he had made the team with his strong play. However, skipper, George Stovall informed Wares that he was staying in Montgomery, telling him “You’re the payment for our grounds rental.” He played over 250 games of Montgomery.  Wares will later rejoin the Cardinals as a coach for the Gas House Gang teams.

    George Sisler talks Babe Ruth March 24

    George Sisler talks Babe Ruth March 24

    George Sisler never played on a pennant winner and he wasn't a slugger, but in spite of that he earned a reputation as the best first baseman in the first 30 years of the 20th century. The greatest player in St. Louis Browns' history, he twice batted over .400, and his 257 hits in 1920 remain a modern major league record. That same year, the lefty-swinging Sisler hit in 41 consecutive games, an American League record that stood until surpassed by Joe DiMaggio. Sisler, who attended the University of Michigan, where he played for Branch Rickey, was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1939.
    Listen to him talk about Babe Ruth.
