[edit] Biographical Information

Paul Erickson, born in Illinois, pitched almost his entire major league career for the Chicago Cubs. He is best known for being part of the 1945 Cubs who won the pennant (he won the deciding game of the pennant race), and he appeared in four 1945 World Series games.

Erickson started slightly fewer than half his major league appearances.

He managed the Appleton Papermakers for part of 1951.

One source says he was a milkman during the off-seasons of his major league career.

In 1942 he spent some time pitching in Nashville. In 1943 he spent some time with the Milwaukee Brewers, going 6-4 with a 3.19 ERA.

His first major league victory was a one-hitter against the 1941 Pirates. Bob Elliott got the only hit.
