Biographical Information[edit]

Lou "Weaser" Scoffic was up in the majors in 1936 with the St. Louis Cardinals. He appeared in four games, hitting .429. One might have thought that hitting .429 would be enough to stick, but manager Frankie Frisch had a pretty good team that year which included Joe Medwick and Johnny Mize.

In March 1936 he made a trip with the Cardinals to Cuba, where the team played against Habana and Almendares.

Scoffic had played minor league ball as early as 1933, and in 1935 hit .342 for Bloomington. In 1936, after his time with the big-league Cardinals, he hit .320 for the Rochester Red Wings and the next year hit .326 for Rochester.

He played 12 seasons in the minors, compiling a batting average of .296. All his time was with teams affiliated with the Cardinals, and he managed in 1940 and 1942 in the organization.

After baseball he worked as a coal miner.
