Eddie Carnett was a regular outfielder for the Chicago White Sox in 1944. He also played for the Boston Braves in 1941 (as a pitcher) and the Cleveland Indians in 1945 (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 of 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 originally to the majors in 1941 by manager Casey Stengel as a pitcher. When he came back in 1944 and 1945, he was primarily a position player instead.
As a pitcher in the minors, Carnett went 129-102.
