Herb Adams (1948-1950) Chicago White Sox Outfielder, Left-handed, 5-ft, 8-inches, 160-lbs
Baseball player Herb Adams broke in with the White Sox in September of 1948, and hit .273 in 5 games. The minor-league scouting reports on Adams during the late-1940s certainly looked impressive. He was rated: - fleet, aggressive on the base-paths and a first-class outfield flychaser. However, he was beset by injuries. His '49 mishaps included a broken bone, scaled hand, and wretched knee. After arriving from Memphis, he batted .293 for the ChicSox with 5 doubles, 3 triples and scored 26 runs in 56 games. In 1950, his final major-league season, Adams played 34 games in a Sox uniform in '50, hitting .203 in 118 at-bats.
