Mickey Grasso - 1951 Bowman

Newton Michael "Mickey" Grasso (May 10, 1920 – October 15, 1975) In January 1942, with one season of minor-league ball under his belt, Mickey Grasso enlisted in the US Army to defend his country. Sergeant Grasso was assigned to the 34th Infantry Division in Tunisia where his unit was captured by the Germans. For the next two years, Grasso was a prisoner of war. After three unsuccessful escape attempts, Grasso and several others finally made it to the Allied line. Back in the States, he regained the 60 pounds he lost as a POW and played briefly for the Giants in 1946. Grasso came up to the majors again in 1950 as the Senators backup catcher, and he started for them in 1952. In his seven Major League seasons, Grasso was weak offensively, but he was a fiery player who was very popular with the fans. He became a restaurateur in Florida and died in 1975 at the age of 55.
