Reading Room BASEBALL COMICS "Rube Rooky Climbs Up from the Pit"

The saga of how a baseball superstar is created continues...
...as Rube leaves his family and girlfriend to pursue his dream...
Wow!
Big-screen TV in 1949?
Who knew?
That aside, anybody here see a parallel between Rube and a real-life ballplayer who faced similiar problems being accepted by his teammates because he was "different" just a year before writer/penciler Will Eisner and inker Tex Blaisdell created this tale?
Be here tomorrow and Monday to see whom I'm talking about...
