 Biographical Information
Outfielder Guy Curtright played nine seasons in the minors after graduating in 1934 from Northeast Missouri State Teachers College (now Truman State University), where he was a star athlete in three different sports. After playing for the St. Paul Saints in 1942, he joined the Chicago White Sox the next year, 1943. In his first big league year, he set a rookie record with a 26-game hitting streak and led the American League in batting midway through the season. The hitting streak was not bettered until Nomar Garciaparra did so in 1997. However, Curtright soon trailed off and saw his playing time reduced as World War II came to a close. He was released by the Sox after the 1946 campaign.
