Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Leo Patrick Burke (born May 6, 1934 in Hagerstown, Maryland) is a retired American utility player in Major League Baseball. The graduate of Virginia Tech played two full seasons and parts of five others in MLB as a rightfielder, second baseman and third baseman for the Baltimore Orioles, Los Angeles Angels, St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago Cubs (1958-1959; 1961-1965). He threw and batted right-handed, stood 5 feet 11 inches (1.80 m) and weighed 185 pounds (84 kg). Despite his relatively brief career, Burke was involved in a noteworthy waiver deal between the Cardinals and Cubs on June 24, 1963, when he was sent to Chicago for relief pitcher Barney Schultz, who would play a key role in the Cardinals' 1964 pennant-winning season.show more
