Also see . . .  Dizzy Dean on Wikipedia. Jay Hanna "Dizzy" Dean (1910-1974) was one of the most popular St. Louis Cardinals players ever, especially during the "Gashouse Gang" era (1934 season). He was a four-time All-Star during his playing years with the Cardinals. In 1938, he would play for the Chicago Cubs but an injury shortened his career. Dean would make a one-game comeback in 1947, pitching for the St. Louis Browns while expressing his disappointment in the pitching staff. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1953.
