Biographical Information[edit]

Clarence Beers pitched in game in the majors, allowing four runs (one earned) in 1/3 of an inning with the St. Louis Cardinals in 1948. Clarence enjoyed a long minor league pitching career; a peak in the minors was 1947, when he was 25-8 for Houston. Al Papai was also on the Houston team, going 21-10, and Papai also came up to the majors in 1948. Beers played service ball in the San Antonio Service Baseball League in 1945 while stationed at Kelly Field. Paul Chervinko was on the same service team.

Baseball Digest in December 1968 told a story about how Beers was instructed to throw a pitchout with the bases empty and a 2-0 count during the 1947 Dixie Series. It was a case of mistaken communication between the manager Johnny Keane and catcher Joe Niedson and Beers dutifully followed through after making the catcher repeat it three times.
