Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Russell Loris Arlett (January 3, 1899 - May 16, 1964), also known as Buzz Arlett, was an American baseball player of German descent. Sometimes called "the Babe Ruth of the minor leagues." Like Ruth, Arlett was a large man (6'4" and 230 pounds (104 kg)) who began his career as a pitcher before becoming his league's dominant home run hitter. He is the all time minor league home run king in the United States. In 1918, Arlett began his professional career by joining his brother (Alexander "Pop" Arlett) on the staff of the Pacific Coast League's Oakland Oaks as a right-handed spitball pitcher. He received his nickname "Buzz" because he was known to cut through opposing batters like a buzz saw. He won 99 games as pitcher.show more
