Why not salute former St. Louis Browns player Eddie Gaedel with this (literally) larger-than-life wall cling? Gaedel, who wore jersey No. 1/8, tallied a lifetime on-base percentage of 1.000 and career baseball earnings of $100 for drawing a single walk against the Tigers on Aug. 19, 1951. Incidentally, the Detroit Tigers won the game 6-2, with Bob Cain, who issued the walk to Gaedel, earning the victory.
