Chuck Connors: He was a major leaguer before “The rifleman”
Chuck Connors was born on this day in 1921 and died in 1992.
We remember Chuck Connors for that woderful western, “The rifleman”. In fact, I try to watch it every Saturday morning. The show was on from 1958 to 1963.
Before the rifle, he played baseball. His career was brief or a just two major league seasons: 1949 Dodgers & 1951 Cubs. Connors also played winter ball in Cuba, as my dad told me.
