Baseball Player Name of the Week

Today I bring you one Gus Godbold (photo unavailable).

Sounds pretty badass, but not much is known about Godbold – he played from 1948 to 1950 for minor league Philadelphia As teams in Moultrie (?), Tarboro (?!) and Fayetteville, batting .270 for his career.

It seems like our friend Godbold also played SS in 1947 for the Kingstree Royals of the Coastal Carolina League. He batted lead off for the team, which won the league title that year. Godbold also was with the Columbia Reds (Reds organization) before the start of the 1948 season.
