Having compiled a 36-23 record (.610) during his five-year major league career, Monty Stratton has his right leg amputated as the result of a hunting accident in Greenville, Texas. The White Sox pitcher’s attempted comeback is chronicled in the 1949 movie The Stratton Story, starring Jimmy Stewart in the title role.
