Eddie Hcrr signed Siebert for the Yankees while he was n student at Concordia Seminary in 1932. He went to Dayton of llic Central League in June on a gentleman's agreement. ' A .3-18 batting average with the Ducks led to Slcbert's purchase by- Brooklyn that fall. Ho went south with the Dodgers In '33, but they had Joe Judge and a couple of bid- timers at first base, and Max Carey lacked the palience of Macx. So Selbert wound up with York of the New York-Pennsylvania- League.
