Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. James William Russell (October 1, 1918 - November 24, 1987) was an outfielder in Major League Baseball for the Pittsburgh Pirates, Boston Braves and Brooklyn Dodgers. He played in the majors from 1942 to 1951. Russell was born in Fayette City, Pennsylvania on October 1, 1918, the son of James Walch "Doc" Russell and Lillian Johnson. Russell never finished high school, but instead went out to work mines to bolster his family's financial situation. Jim played baseball with rocks (for balls) and tree limbs (for bats) in alleyways when he was a youngster. As a youth, he contracted rheumatic fever twice; his baseball career would be severed short because of his rheumatic heart disease.
