This Day in Reds History: Remembering George McQuinn

George McQuinn - http://thestlbrowns.blogspot.com

On this day in 1968, former Red George McQuinn died in Alexandria, VA at the age of 68. McQuinn came up with Cincinnati in 1936. He spent only one year in the Queen City and later established himself as a regular with the St. Louis Browns. McQuinn played well in St. Louis, making the All-Star team four times in his stint with the Browns. In three seasons, he even received MVP votes. He rounded out his career with the Yankees in 1947 and '48. McQuinn made the All-Star team both years and had one of his best seasons in '47 at the age of 37. He hit .304 that season with 78 walks, giving him a robust on-base percentage of .395, and he also finished sixth in the MVP voting.
