Lou Kretlow

1957 Topps

Louis Henry Kretlow (June 27, 1921 – September 12, 2007) Probably a better golfer than he was a baseball player, Lou Kretlow played for four different teams, none too successfully. The Oklahoma native and US Army Air Force veteran was a hot prospect. He received a $35,000 signing bonus from the Detroit Tigers in 1946. The journeyman pitcher was both a starter and a reliever who ended his ten-year MLB career with a sub .500 record and a hefty 4.87 ERA. His best season was probably 1952 for the White Sox, where he was 4–4 with a 2.96 ERA. That year he pitched two shutouts in late July, a 3–0 win vs. the Red Sox and a 7–0 victory vs. the Yankees. After baseball, Kretlow owned an oil company and became a golf pro. His golfing claim to fame? He hit a record-setting 427-yard hole-in-one in 1961. Lou Kretlow died in 2007 at the age of 86.
