    Unhappy Former Smalling diamond foe Jack Crimian dead at age 92

    Crimian, a RHP in the 1950s, died 2/11, just 6 days short of his 93rd birthday.

    His only full season in The Show was in 1956, when he went 4-8 for the Kansas City Athletics. He had short stints with the Cardinals (1951-52) and the Tigers (1957).

    In a passage in Smalling's Baseball Address List, Jack Smalling recaps some of his semipro baseball career, and mentions facing Crimian after he retired from MLB. Crimian "dispatched me on strikes with ease", according to the baseball address guru.
