Lefty Brewer's Sacrifice

Lefty Brewer

Scout Joe Cambria of the Washington Senators was in Florida in the summer of 1938, seeking new talent for D.C.'s major league baseball team. When he watched Forrest "Lefty" Brewer pitch for the St. Augustine Saints, Cambria had no doubt that this was a player who could help turn around the struggling D.C. club. The Senators signed Brewer, but his life had a greater purpose. Exactly six years after he pitched a no hitter in the minor leagues, Lefty Brewer jumped out of a plane over Normandy, France.
