The prototype of the new style of third baseman, did he have a long enough career for our purposes?

What was his story in 1943-44? The 1969 MacMillan just says "1943 illness" - no explanation for 1944. Was he working a military job or still "ill"?

Wikipedia states he had a bad case of the mumps and suffered some type of horse-riding accident, Joe.

Cool, thanks John.

According to Bill James in the BJHBA, he caught the mumps from his daughter, and the disease spread to his testicles. Doesn't sound like fun. He had the horse riding accident at his farm in Washington state during the winter of 1943/44, and was thrown on to his right shoulder, mising most of 1944 as a result.
