Playing under assumed names

Postby Jay » Sat Jan 30, 2016 7:44 pm

I am working on New York State League stats and stories right now for the 1940-41 season, and already come across 2 names that have lost college eligibility due to playing under an assumed name and were caught. Wanted to see if anyone else ran across any. So far, I have found:

Lou Simon of Long island University playing as Bud Clancy for the Syracuse Reds.
Walt Dropo of University of Connecticut (Boston Red Sox) playing as Walter Flanagan for the Saratoga Indians.

Also, Big Ed Sadowski of Seton Hall played as Bob Maxwell for the Syracuse Reds.


Please add to the list, this is interesting.
