A Life in Baseball: Ossie Bluege, Gripped by the Game

Wilor Bluege writes about her father’s legacy for readers to relish.


Score a home run by reading about Ossie Bluege’s journey throughout his baseball stardom in Wilor M. Bluege’s “A Life in Baseball: Ossie Bluege, Gripped by the Game.”

Ossie Bluege spent eighteen years in the major leagues playing for the Washington Senators. He played on three pennant winning teams and in three World Series (1924, 1925, and 1933). He played on the 1924 World Series Championship team that beat the New York Giants in 1924. In 1935, he played for the American League in the first-ever All Star Game.

The owner of the team, Clark Griffith, called him “the greatest third baseman of all time” because of his nothing short of miraculous play-handling ability at the “hot corner” around third base. He executed plays that no one else could touch — and made them look easy. Teammate Luke Sewell quipped, “I can tell you the two greatest infielders of my time… and there he is over there hitting fungoes… He played shortstop and third base at the same time.”

From sandlot baseball on Chicago’s south side in 1913, to the big leagues, to the front office of one of the longest enduring family franchises in baseball history, this is the story of a lifelong journey in baseball — a journey that covered an amazing 50 years with the Washington Senators and Minnesota Twins. He was crucial in the decision to move the Senators to Minnesota to become the Minnesota Twins.

Wilor has drawn from her father’s scrapbooks and memorabilia in the creation of “A Life in Baseball: Ossie Bluege, Gripped by the Game” and illuminated it with photos and commentary from sportswriters, and anecdotes from the early days of baseball. The book is meant to appeal to baseball enthusiasts.
