Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jack Wayne Lohrke (February 25, 1924 - April 29, 2009) was a former third baseman in Major League Baseball. During his playing career, he stood 6' (183 cm) tall, weighed 180 pounds (81.7 kg) and threw and batted right-handed. He earned the nickname "Lucky" not only because it sounded similar to his last name, but because he averted being involved in two fatal transit accidents before reaching the major leagues. During his three years of service in the United States Army during World War II, Lohrke was bumped from the passenger list of a military transport plane at the last moment; it would later crash.
