I didn't realize that that was the only day." - Moonlight Graham

    Sisler by far. Best player, most recognizable, impacted the team most, most associated with the franchise.

    Definitely Sisler. It may've been Satch had he played longer with the team, but Sisler was by far the most prominent Brown ever.
    Put it in the books.

    I almost added him HWR, but I figured Gaedel was good enough.

    How about Ken Williams? I like both Clift and Sisler very much, but Williams was perhaps the finest power hitter the Browns ever had.

    When there's a poll about the face of St. Louis Brown soap actors, Johnny will definitely come out in first place.

    Eddie Gaedel. When I think of the Browns, I see a 3 foot 7 midget in the batters box, and the pitcher laughing and laughing and laughing as he delivers four straight balls. Standing ovation for the midget.

    Let's go, Eddie Gaedel!
