This Date In Baseball History- November 28, 1938- Chicago White Sox pitcher Monte Stratton had his right leg amputated as a result of a hunting accident in Greenville, Texas. The 25 year old Stratton was coming off two straight 15 win seasons for the White Sox- and had a 36-23 3.71 ERA in his young career. He made the All-Star Game in 1937. Stratton would attempt a comeback in the minor leagues- this would inspire a 1949 movie starring James Stewart. Not the greatest movie ever made but if James Stewart was in it- it at least had that going for it. Also in the movie baseball players- Gene Beardon, Bill Dickey, Merv Shea and Jimmy Dykes appeared as themselves. Monte Stratton died in 1982 at the age of 70.
