Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Brooks Ulysses Lawrence (January 30, 1925 - April 27, 2000) was a Major League Baseball All-Star pitcher for the St. Louis Cardinals (1954-1955), Cincinnati Redlegs (1956-1959), and Cincinnati Reds (1960). Lawrence was born in Springfield, Ohio, and attended Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. His career started in the Negro National League, where he earned the nickname "Bull." His Major League debut came in 1954. As a 29-year-old rookie, Lawrence went 15-6 with a 3.74 ERA while starting and relieving for the 1954 St. Louis Cardinals. Lawrence struggled in 1955 and he was demoted to Oakland (in the Pacific Coast League), but he went 5-1 down the stretch and earned a second chance with the big-league club.show more
