[edit] Biographical Information

A true baseball wunderkind, Carl Scheib was the youngest player in the history of the American League. He debuted with the Philadelphia Athletics on September 6, 1943, at the age of 16 years, 8 months, and 5 days. Perhaps equally amazing is that he left the majors at the still young age of 27 - after an 11-year pitching career! Scheib was occasionally used as an extra outfielder and pinch hitter. Having batted the equivalent of a full season during his career, he hit for a very respectable .250 lifetime average.
