Infielder James Adlam had a lengthy minor league career, which would have been longer if not for World War II. His career began in 1937 and he played until 1942, missing 1943-1945 because of the war. He came back and played from 1946 to 1953.
Although he never hit above .275 in a season from 1937 to 1942, Adlam found his hitting stroke after the war and led the Wisconsin State League in batting average in both 1946 and 1947, hitting .375 and .429 respectively (while playing with the Fond du Lac Panthers).
He also had respectable power, hitting as many as 20 home runs in a season and hitting ten or more eight times in his 12-year career. Overall, he batted .281 with 130 home runs and 1,124 hits.
