Daily Conlon: 280 through 288

Here are todays Daily Conlon cards numbered 280 through 288, and it features former Dodger Curt Davis- on the top row, far right. Click on any pic to embiggen.

Davis didn't get his chance to play in the Majors until he was 30 years old, but still was able to have a long career in the show. He played for 4 different clubs over 13 season. The key to his longevity was that he averaged less than 2 walks every 9 innings over his career.

Curt Davis joined the Brooklyn Dodgers as a 36 year old in 1940 and went on to win 66 games for them over 7 season. In 1946, at the age of 42, he pitched in just one game (his last in the Majors) and was sent back down for good to Montreal. There, he would be a teammate of Jackie Robinson.
