The Sacramento Solons of 1946

Solons Outfielder

A native of Crockett, Texas, Jesse Glenn Landrum signed with the Chicago White Sox while still in his junior year at college. He played one year in the majors.

Landrum was with the Solons in 1944 and again in 1946. He was given his outright release in mid season of 1946. Although he was one of the Solons' best hitters in the previous season, he was unable to hit consistently in the faster circuit. He accordingly left Sacramento and returned home, hoping to catch on in the Texas League.

Purportedly likes Texas redheads, horse opera movies, and golf. Winter occupation: mechanic.
