Alfred (Skip) Jutze
The catcher, who converted to Judaism, played parts of six seasons in the majors from 1972 to 1977. Drafted by St. Louis in 1968, he made his major-league debut with the Cardinals in 1972, hitting .239 in 21 games. After a trade to Houston, he appeared in a career-high 90 games in 1973, hitting .223 with 18 RBIs. Acquired by Seattle in 1977, he hit the first grand slam in Mariners history in a game against Baltimore. Later that year, he had another memorable moment with a homer off of future Hall of Famer Ferguson Jenkins.
A two-sport athlete at Central Connecticut State University, Skip was named the ECAC football player of the year in 1965.
