[edit] Biographical Information

Dick Culler played eight seasons in the big leagues. After a cup of coffee with the Philadelphia Athletics in 1936, he didn't come back until 1943. He then played in the majors each season from 1943 to 1949.

Dick was born in High Point, NC, near Greensboro, NC. He attended High Point High School.

In between his first major league stint and his second, he played in the minors for Reidsville, Nashville and St. Paul. In 1944, although he was in the majors for a while, he spent most of the season with Milwaukee. From 1948 to 1950, he also was in the minors at least part of each season.

He was one of three managers for the Reidsville Luckies in 1939.

He was known as "Broadus" (his middle name) in High Point, and was a star athlete in high school. He played for an outlaw league before his time in the majors and also in 1937. After baseball, he started a sporting goods business and later purchased a dairy farm.
