Mickey Owen was born on Tuesday, April 4, 1916, in Nixa, Missouri. Owen was 21 years old when he broke into the big leagues on May 2, 1937, with the St. Louis Cardinals.

"(Mickey) Owen feared he would be a pariah for Brooklyn fans, but he was evidently forgiven. 'I got about 4,000 wires and letters,' he told W. C. Heinz in The Saturday Evening Post on the 25th anniversary of the passed ball. 'I had offers of jobs and proposals of marriage. Some girls sent their pictures in bathing suits, and my wife tore them up.'" - Columnist Richard Goldstein in The New York Times (07/15/2005)
