Nieman hit home runs in his first two major league at-bats, the first player ever to do so. He is the first on my A to Z list to play in both St. Louis Brown and Baltimore Oriole uniforms. He also played one year in Japan for the Chunichi Dragons.
For each letter of the A to Z Challenge, I will feature one player from Baltimore Orioles/St. Louis Browns history. I hope you will join me. I hope you'll also check out the other 1200+ blogs participating. See the full list at Tossing It Out.
My friend and fellow music teacher Marc is jumping into the A to Z Challenge a little late but is doing double-time to catch up. Check him out at Marc Whitman's Blog.
