Rogan: Sports’ Forgotten Heroes: Roy Sievers

From SABR member Warren Rogan at Sports’ Forgotten Heroes on May 20, 2019, with SABR member Gregory H. Wolf:

Roy Sievers was one the first two players in Major League history to hit at least 300 homeruns over the course of his career and NOT be elected to baseball’s Hall of Fame. Sievers played mostly for the St. Louis Browns and Washington Senators and could hit the ball a mile. But, much of the early part of his career was affected by injury, and if not for the help of Bill Veeck, Sievers career could have been cut short.

Join one of the directors of the SABR Bioproject, Gregory Wolf, as we take a look back at the career of Roy Sievers.
