Myron Walter Drabowsky, born in Ozanna, Poland, fled the Nazis with his mother in 1938 at the age of 3. Drabowsky’s father joined them a year later where they lived in Wilson, Conn. The young Drabowsky, who went by “Moe,” went on to excel on the diamond at Trinity College in Hartford, Conn.

The talented pitcher received a bonus to sign with the Chicago Cubs and went on to play for eight different major league teams throughout his 17-year professional career.

Drabowsky was one of baseball’s most beloved characters, well-known for playing practical jokes on teammates. One of his proudest moments was when he gave then-baseball commissioner Bowie Kuhn a hot foot.

While he was known for his antics, Drabowsky also became a World Series hero for the Baltimore Orioles. The Los Angeles Dodgers hosted the Orioles in Game One of the 1966 World Series. Drabowsky entered the game in the third inning and proceeded to set a World Series record for relievers by striking out 11, including tying a record for striking out six-consecutive batters. Baltimore went on to defeat the Dodgers in four games.

A member of both the 1966 and 1970 Orioles World Championship teams, Drabowsky passed away June 10, 2006, with many of his prized baseball possessions still displayed in his Sarasota home office. A friend close to his wife, Rita, suggested she obtain help with appraising, authenticating and inventorying Drabowsky’s memorabilia items for insurance and possible auction consideration.

More and more athletes, entertainers and their families are consigning to auction houses to sell their items and disperse the revenue evenly amongst the family members or to charity. Earl Weaver, Curt Shilling, John Wayne and Robin Roberts are just a few athletes and entertainers who have recently consigned their career keepsakes to auction.
