Brewer Sportraits No. 6: Bill Nagel

Today we feature another in the line of "Brewer Sportraits" cartoons from Milwaukee Sentinel artist Lou Grant.

Today, the subject is Brewer third baseman Bill Nagel.

We've previously looked at Nagel's career in Milwaukee. He was brought to the Cream City after the 1943 season by president Bill Veeck, one of Sport Shirt Bill's last deals before enlisting in the Marine Corps. The slugging third-sacker was valuable enough to attract major-league attention before he even spent a single season at the Orchard; he was sold to the Chicago White Sox in August of 1944, but remained in a Brewer uniform long enough to help the club win its second consecutive pennant.
