My friend is in his mid-seventies and played professional baseball for Rocky Mount in 1954. He swears that he faced a pitcher that he believes was Hersh Freeman but did not pitch under that name. After searching for Freeman's statistics, he played for the Red Sox in 1953 and in 1955. In 1954, his statistics are totally missing and there is no accounting for what he did that year. To solve a minor mystery for my friend, is there anyone who can me about Hersh Freeman's lost year(1954) ? Was he injured, or did he play under another name for some strange reason?
