Lou Brissie - 1951 Bowman

Leland Victor “Lou” Brissie (1924-2013) caught the eye of Connie Mack and the Philadelphia Athletics at the age of 17, but college and three year in the United States Army during World War II took precedence so baseball would have to wait. Lou was involved with numerous battles during WWII and withstood an attack on the 88th Infantry Division in Italy where he emerged at the unit’s only survivor. Brissie signed with the A’s in December of 1946 and he debuted the following spring, appearing in one game of the 1947 season. He won 30 games in his next two seasons and earned consideration for the American League Rookie of the Year and AL MVP awards in 1948, while receiving an All-Star selection in 1949. He pitched seven years in the Majors with the A’s (1947-1951 and the Cleveland Indians (1951-1953). Lou Brissie finished his career with a 44-48 record, 93 starts, 45 complete games and 29 saves, 436 strikeouts and a 4.07 career ERA. Following his playing days, Lou served as the National Director of the American Legion Baseball program.
