Batting Average 1.00 – George Allen Abrams

It is hard to get a stellar batting average of 1.00, but not if you are George Allen Abrams. He did with a single in his only at-bat. Realizing it was all downhill from there, he promptly retired… or at least that’s how we view it. A great stunt if you can afford the job change, and George Abrams chart is all about job changes and timing.

The Cincinnati Reds picked him up for their pitching staff & he had 3 games with them in the 1923 season. He came over from the 1922 Enid Oklahoma Harvesters where he had a 18-5 win record. Our featured image is of the Cincinnati Reds after their 1919 World Series win, Abrams was not on the team.

                            The Abrams Chart

George was born in Seattle, Washington right before the turn of the 20th century on November 9, 1899 at 7:33 Pm. He has two incredible stelliums in his chart.  The first is in the Twelfth House where fixed Scorpio lies,  and the other in mutable of Sagittarius. This makes the planets span from the Twelfth into the First House and start with the willful Sun and close out with persevering Saturn. 

He was born a Bundle with a Neptune handle in the first house, always his own man, but by 1930 when he was between careers, Pluto happened and things changed making him a Prism Temperament Type. His dynamic aptitude is part of the prism structure, and in case Saturn (obviously the Great Depression though possibly a close family death or a vagrancy charge) opposite Neptune made him realize that his happy-go-lucky ways were at end—he had to buckle down and get a career.

Many of his planets are in the Southern hemisphere they are mainly in the fixed quadrature — objects and things not people but Neptune had given him a good eye for remembering trends and nuances, those tell-tale signs that gave a customer, salesman, or opposing batter away. He waited, and watched like Job in the Old Testament, and learned some new skills (Moon in the 9th), but the War interrupted, and so had to wait again.

Abrams was a true mutable. He changed careers, moved around the country several times and then entered the Navy in World War II.  When that stint ended, for twenty-eight years, he was district manager Acushnet Golf Company (owners of Titleist Golf Balls & Clubs) of New Bedford, Massachusetts,   though based in Evanston, Illinois (north of Chicago) his turf was once again the Midwest.

Abrams became an avid golfer Because of his job and interest in ball playing, and retired to Clearwater Florida. He died there in the Morton Plant Hospital on December 5, 1986.  He is buried in Clearwater too,  but that’s about all we know.¹
