Al Cicotte was born on Monday, December 23, 1929, and began his Major League baseball career on April 22, 1957, with the New York Yankees. The 27 year-old played for 5 seasons on 6 different teams and ended his big league playing career in 1962.  I believe he graduated from Melvindale in 1944.  His bio was recreated using information found online with leads from Steve Cicotte, a 3rd cousin to Al.
