 Biographical Information
Earl Averill played seven years in the majors, and held down several different positions in the field.
Averill broke in as a catcher with the Cleveland Indians in 1956, but played solely third base during his time in the majors with the same team in 1958. For the rest of his career he was primarily a catcher except in 1962 when he was mostly a left fielder. In most years he split his time between catcher, the infield and the outfield.
He is the son of Hall of Famer Earl Averill. Bob Feller played with both Earl Averills. Earl the son was born in 1931, during Earl the father's third year with the Cleveland Indians. The only other major leaguer born in 1931 in Cleveland, OH, Ray Semproch, was also on the 1961 Angels.
