Paul Schramka 1953 Cubs #14
Paul Schramka sent a great article by Eddie Gold of the Chicago Sun-Times. The article talks about how Paul wore the number 14 jersey before Ernie Banks (the number was retired in 1982 by the Cubs).
Paul wore the jersey during his two games in the majors.
Paul's pro baseball career was interrupted with military service in Germany but he came back and went back to baseball.
Number 14 for the Cubs, before Schramka, was Lou Novikoff in 1944.
