Sheldon Jones - 1951 Bowman

Sheldon Leslie "Available" Jones (February 2, 1922 – April 18, 1991) A fairly dependable starter and reliever, Sheldon “Available” Jones enjoyed a few decent years with the New York Giants. His unique nickname came about because of his durability and willingness to step on the mound whenever he was needed. In 1948 and 1949, he had successful seasons as both a starter and reliever going 16–8 and 15–12, respectively, for the Giants. After that, he was used primarily as a reliever with mediocre success. Jones pitched effectively for the Giants in the 1951 World Series, pitching a total of 4.1 innings in two games with a combined 2.08 ERA. Before MLB, Jones spent two years in the minors and three years in the military, where he perfected his fastball and curveball while pitching for Uncle Sam in Florida and Panama. After baseball, Jones worked for General Electric in Dallas, Texas. He passed away in 1991 at age 69.
