A well-traveled catcher from the Lone Star State smacked a three-run double to put the Detroit Tigers ahead of the Chicago Cubs in Game 7 of the World Series on Oct. 10, 1945.

Dear Heloise: My pet is 20 months old. She’s smart and cute as can be. Daisy thinks everyone loves her. Our neighbor gives her treats and makes her sit or give out her paw. Daisy is a Maltese/Shih Tzu, and she doesn’t shed. -- Jane and Robert, Florida Readers, to see Daisy and our other Pet Pals, go to Heloise. com and click on “Pet of the Week.” Do you have a furry friend to share with our readers?
