Tubby Spencer Newsbeat
Thursday, September 15, 2016
Guess who’s back? Back again. Tubby’s back. Tell a friend. Toledo News-Bee, September 15, 1916:
Tubby’s always been a Dugout favorite. If you can think of a ridiculous and insane thing a drunk person would do, Tubs probably did it. The man dove through a plate glass window for a sandwich, for crying out loud.
From 1910-1915, Spencer made a total of 11 MLB appearances. In 1912, he hit .194 for Louisville before being more or less banned from the city as a result of his drunken antics. He went west to San Francisco, where he slugged .141 for the 1913 Seals. Tubby was literally a hobo. His career should have been over. Instead, he cleaned himself up, signed with Detroit in mid-1916, and hit .370/.443/.481 down the stretch.
