Hal Trosky, whose season ended last August when he injured his finger, and suffering from migraine headaches that cannot be treated, retires as first baseman of the Indians. Trosky will come back to play for the Chicago White Sox in 1944 and 1946, but the Hall of Fame-type brilliance he showed in the 1930s is gone. Trosky remains one of the most prolific power hitters the franchise has ever had and is fifth on Cleveland’s all-time home runs list with 216 career long balls.
