Solons Infielder - 1942, 1946-1948
Steve then returned to the PCL to play for Sacramento. He was a part of the team that won the only league pennant for the Solons in 1942. His .301 average with 74 rbi's that season won him another trip to the majors where he played the next three seasons for the Cincinnati Reds in 1943, 1944, and 1945, consistently batting over .300. But his performance started to fall off toward of the 1945 season, and he returned to Sacramento the following year. He played for the Solons again in 1946, 1947, and the first part of 1948 before being traded to San Diego. After a season and a half for the Padres, he finished off his career at third base for the Portland Beavers in 1950.
