Groth, Zernial, Hatton, Scheib

The above are #36 Johnny Groth, #42 Gus Zernial, #45 Grady Hatton, and #57 Carl Scheib.  Groth and Scheib both were obtained TTM, and each charged $5.  The other two were purchased.  For a second-division team, the Philadelphia Athletics sure had a lot of talent: Zernial lead the AL in home runs in 1951, and consistently had over 100 RBI's each season, Scheib was a pretty decent pitcher himself, and they had Bobby Shantz, the 1952 AL MVP and Harry Byrd, who was the Rookie of the Year that season as well.
