Wally Judnich had an excellent year in 1942 with the 1942 St. Louis Browns, with an Adjusted OPS of 154. He was coming into the prime of his career, and World War II robbed him of his best years as well as the chance to be on the only Browns championship team in 1944. Judnich entered the Air Force in March 1943 and was discharged in November 1946. When he came back in 1946, he was 29 years old and no longer at the top of his game.
After his major league days, he played for many years in the PCL.
He was also known as "Walt Judnich".
Judnich was one of Bowie Kuhn's favorite players, because Wally had once spoken to him very kindly when Kuhn was young.
