Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. George Decatur Fallon (July 8, 1914 - October 25, 1994) was a backup second baseman/shortstop in Major League Baseball who played for the Brooklyn Dodgers (1937) and St. Louis Cardinals (1943-1945). A native of Jersey City, New Jersey, Fallon batted and threw right-handed. He debuted on September 27, 1937, and played his final game on July 13, 1945. In a four-season career, Fallon posted a .216 batting average (61-for-282) with one home run and 21 RBIs in 133 games played. One notable moment in Fallon's career-he was the first batter to face Cincinnati Reds pitcher Joe Nuxhall when the then 15-year-old Nuxhall made his major league debut on June 10, 1944. Nuxhall retired Fallon on a groundout.show more
