Eddie Waitkus batted .285 during an 11-year career with the Chicago Cubs, Philadelphia Phillies and Baltimore Orioles. He made his debut early in the 1941 season, but played just a few weeks and did not return to the major leagues until 1946. Waitkus was selected to the National League All-Star team in 1949, the same year that he was shot by an obsessed fan. He returned to play a full season in 1950.
