Paul Schramka

LFHP Autograph Card

Schramka played in two games for the Chicago Cubs in 1953. He did not get an at bat but spent two innings playing in the outfield as a defensive replacement. Schramka’s minor-league career lasted from 1949-1954. However, he did not play during the 1951-1952 seasons as he was in the United States Army during the Korean War. In his best minor-league season Schramka hit 20 home runs for the Cubs’ A team in Des Moines in 1950.


As he notes, Schramka wore No. 14 for the Cubs before Ernie Banks. He is a member of the University of San Francisco’s sports Hall of Fame. He is currently one of the 100-oldest-living players.

Writer, historian, father, intrepid traveller, journalist, punk rocker ... I am actually in the (a) Hall of Fame. They said to never trust anyone over 30 and now I am so far past that point, spinning aimlessly and still trying to figure out my place in the world.
