Control Pitcher Learned Craft the Natural Way

Lester McCrabb made his mark with Philadelphia A’s in 1941

Frank McCrabb, a Quarryville dirt farmer working a 219 acre farm owned by County Commissioner Albert Fritz on the halves, remarked one day to a friend who was standing by: “Lester must be throwing again.”

“What?” the friend asked cautiously.

“I said I can tell Lester has been throwing at the tomato posts again. They are oozing tomato juice and shredded chunks. It’s Lester’s favorite pastime when I’m not in sight.”

Lester McCrabb, born in Peach Bottom in 1918, was a young upright then. Unthinking and quite unintentionally, he was developing the marvelous control that would reward him one day in baseball as one of the fine control pitchers of his time.

But Lest insists he didn’t have the remotest thought about control throwing, whatever that was. “I started to throw at targets when I was two years old,” he re-called. “It became second nature to me, a kind of fun thing.”

Later, however, another strange thing occurred when Lester filled out a school form asking him what he wanted to be in his life. He wrote: “A professional baseball player.”

“I wasn’t even thinking about baseball when I wrote that,” said Les. “I simply had an urge to say it for some unknown reason.”

He was around 12 or 13 then, attending pre-Colerain High School, an in a real baseball sense wasn’t doing any more thinking about playing the game than before. But he was still winging away at the tomato posts, to the chagrin of his daddy.

It was still the principal chore in his young life.

He got to be in his late teens, around 17, before he began to show some interest in the diamond sport. He began throwing baseballs around instead of tomatoes, and it wasn’t long before he got into the organized game.

His tomato career had done a job on him, and he finally awakened to the joy of the national pastime. In a short time Strasburg got him into a suit and he was pitching in the Lanco League at $10 per week. This was 1935-36.

Les also acquired a patron saint, the next step, as he came under the tutelage of Ephraim Seldomridge of Quarryville. And a remarkable career began to take shape.

Seldomridge wrote to Connie Mack, owner of the Philadelphia Athletics and one of baseball’s icons of the day, laying out the potential of the youngster from Quarryville. Mack invited Seldomridge and his protégé to Philadelphia for a look-see. Connie watched while Earle, his son, caught Lester. That was in 1936, and after the command performance McCrabb was signed to a contract with Williamsport, an A’s farm.

For the next three years he made the grand tour of the minor leagues. He debuted in the South Carolina League, going 17-2. Williamsport recalled him and he trained with the A’s in Lousiiana; he was then sent to Greenville, S.C. of the South Atlantic League. He divided 1939 between Williamsport nad the parent A’s, where he was 1-2. He then went to spring training again with the A’s in Anaheim, California.

During the off-season he was asked to pitch in Havana by Mie Guerre, who managed and caught for the Cubans. Les went 6-0 and received $3,500, proportionately his biggest payday to then.

Despite this seeming merry-go-round, which wasn’t unusual for members of the Mack family, Les had some bright and productive years in baseball.

He had two mini-careers with a pair of teams in Canada, the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Montreal Royals. He had several excellent stays with the Athletics over a period of ten years or more, and his various periods with the Lancaster Red Roses were first class.

In 1940 the Macks sold Les to Toronto where he became one of the top performers on the Leafs’ pitching staff. One of his first big wins in Toronto occurred in his first outing there when he beat Tony Lazzeri’s Buffalo team, 2-0. He finished the season 10-11.
