 Biographical Information
Eddie Carnett was a regular outfielder for the 1944 Chicago White Sox. He also played for the 1941 Boston Braves (as a pitcher) and the 1945 Cleveland Indians (as a position player). In the minors, he had a long career as a two-way player.
In the majors, Carnett was asked to pitch a couple games by each of his three teams. Only in 1945 was he particularly successful, with two flawless innings.
Carnett was born in Springfield, MO in 1916. His major league career was a set of brief interludes in a 19-year minor league career during which he hit .314. He was brought up orginally to the majors in 1941 by manager Casey Stengel as a pitcher. When he came back in 1944-45, he was primarily a position player instead.
As a pitcher in the minors, Carnett went 129-102.
