#324 Don Demeter

Oklahoma native Don Demeter was a Brooklyn Dodger signee in 1953 and played eleven years in the majors, for five different teams. Never a star, he did have a career he can be proud of. But sometimes a dry recitation of stats, trades, accomplishments and the like just doesn't do a guy justice.

I found a wonderful video about Don Demeter. It was done, with much love obviously, by his grandson. The ballplayer-turned-preacher talks of his life and career. It's six minutes long and worth it.

If you are interested in more about this gem of a guy you can read his SABR page or a nice article written about his induction into the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame.
