"I was thrilled to death (when he made his Major League debut), but I'd never gone on the field if I couldn't do the job in a professional way. It wouldn't be fair to the rest of the players. If it had looked like a 'pathetic' thing, I never would have gone near the field." - Bert Shepard in The Man Who Pitched on One Leg (Baseball Digest : July 1986)

Bert Shepard was a Lieutenant in the Air Force during World War II, and on his thirty-fourth mission with the 55th Fighter Force, he crash landed in Germany, lost part of his right leg, and was sent to a German prison camp. After being repatriated in February 1945, he tried out for the Washington Senators that spring and would eventually make his Major League debut later that same year.
