Paul Schramka Trades and Transactions

The Paul Schramka trades and transactions seen below include all known instances where Paul Schramka has been involved in a trade or transaction of any type as it relates to baseball.

"Paul Schramka's Chicago Cubs jersey number ( #14 ) is retired, which is curious considering he never batted in a big league game. After being inserted into the lineup in April 1953 as a pinch runner in one game and as a late-inning replacement left fielder in a second, Schramka was shipped to a minor league team in Springfield, Mass. He bounced to other farm clubs in Des Moines, Iowa; Beaumont, Texas; and finally Macon, Ga. Then he became a mortician in Milwaukee. The wiry rookie who took Schramka's jersey number after his exit in 1953 batted 9,421 times in the major leagues and hit 512 home runs. His name was Ernie Banks . he played shortstop, then first base. Then he was inducted into the Hall of Fame." - Staff Writer Ted Gregory in The Chicago Tribune (10/30/2016, Unknown Cub shares retired jersey number , Section 1, Page 18)
