Frank House

Biography:Frank House (February 18, 1930 - March 13, 2005), nicknamed "Pig", was a catcher in Major League Baseball who played with the Detroit Tigers (1950-51, 1954-57, 1961), Kansas City Athletics (1958-59) and Cincinnati Reds (1961). He batted left-handed and threw right-handed.

In a 10-season career, House posted a .248 batting average with 47 home runs and 235 RBI in 653 games. As a catcher, in 580 games he compiled a .988 fielding percentage with 2934 putouts, 258 assists, and only 34 errors in 2934 total chances.

A native of Bessemer, Alabama, House signed out of high school with the Tigers in 1948 for one of the biggest bonuses of the time - $75,000 and two automobiles, according to news reports. House made his debut in 1950 at 20 years of age. He earned his nickname as a baby, when his family used to say he was "big as a house" and he twisted "big" into "pig".

Strong defensive ability can often earn a catcher a job in the major leagues regardless of hitting ability, and House fit that mold as a solid receiver with a fast release and a strong arm. He also called a good game and was great at blocking the plate. His most productive season came in 1955 when he hit .259 with 15 home runs and 53 RBI in 102 games.

House later served in the Alabama Legislature, where he was instrumental in the creation of the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame in 1967. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1975 and was honored in 2004 when the Hall instituted the Frank "Pig" House Award to recognize contributors to state sports.

House died in Birmingham, Alabama at age 75.
