1. Louis Peo Chiozza
One of the nearly famous burials at Calvary is the grave of Louis Peo Chiozza who played major league baseball. "An Infielder, he became the first player to ever bat in a major league night game when he came to the plate for the Phillies against the Reds on May 24, 1935. He eventually grounded out to Cincinatti shortstop Billy Myers." Find A Grave http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=13570834
