I was at this game. I find that several games in this time period are rather forgettable. The only things that stand out for me was that (1) I was at the game with my immediate supervisor, (2) Brandon Larson hit a pinch-hit home run, and (3) on the way to the game, on I-71 S, we saw a Highway Patrol cruiser pull over a beat-up van with about seven or eight stoners piling out of it. My boss and I both said at the same time, "The Mystery Machine!"

I'm pretty sure the Ralph Beard that pitched for the Cards is the same person who was an All America basketball player at Kentucky. He was the point guard on the Fabulous Five teams of the late 40's. He only played MLB this one season for the Cardinals and was 0-4 with a 3.72 ERA.

This game was his major-league debut.

Was that also the UK team that had Alex Groza, or did Groza play earlier?

6-29-1905 was also the one and only MLB appearance for Archibald "Moonlight" Graham who was immortilized in Field of Dreams. Just an FYI :)

Yes Groza was on those teams. They were the original Fab Five. They won two consecutive NCAA's and Beard was the PG for both of those. Below is a profile of his basketball playing days at UK.

For those who don't know, Alex Groza was the brother of Cleveland Browns Hall-Of-Famer Lou "The Toe" Groza. They were both from Martins Ferry, a small town in Belmont County on the Ohio River, directly across from Wheeling, West Virginia. Immediately to the south of Martins Ferry is Bridgeport (as you exit Martins Ferry, you enter Bridgeport), which is the hometown of Celtics HOFer John Havlicek and the Niekro brothers--Phil and Joe. Immediately to the south of Bridgeport is Bellaire (exit Bridgeport, enter Bellaire), which is the hometown of former New York Jets LB Lance Mehl, former Browns LB Ben Taylor, current Patriots WR Joey Galloway, and 49'ers rookie QB Nate Davis.

The combined population of Martins Ferry, Bridgeport, and Bellaire is approximately 14,000.
