The Ole Ball Game

What team did Brownie Szafranski pitch for?

by A. Szafranski

A. Szafranski asked:It's family legend that my grandfather, Brownie (Braunislaw) Szafranski pitched in the major leagues and left to fight in WW2. I can't find him on any roster. Can you help me find his team and info?

Rick Answered:

I was unable to locate any information on Brownie Szafranski having ever played major league baseball.

His name does not appear on Baseball Reference or Baseball Almanac, both great resources for baseball statistics and history.

Sorry I wasn't able to locate the information.

Yours in baseball,

Thank you Rick for trying. I'm afraid I may have debunked the family myth. I really liked believing it, so it's kinda sad.
