Nicknames Week...

Former Cincinnati and St. Louis Cardinal
hurler Ed Heusser was nicknamed, “The
Wild Elk of Wasatch.”

Editor’s Note: Born in Salt Lake City, Utah
in the shadow of the Wasatch Mountain
range, which is home to many elk. Heusser
would piece together a 56-67, 3.69 record
over nine big league seasons from 1935 to
1948. His best campaign came in 1944, as
the right-hander went 13-11 with an NL
leading 2.38 ERA for the third place
Cincinnati Reds.
