Dain Clay

A Cuyahoga Falls High all-around athlete, Dain Clay put together a colorful athletic career which included 17 years in organizational baseball with Mid-Atlantic, International, Three I, Texas, Pacific Coast, American Association, Southern, Western International, and National League clubs. In pro baseball, he started as a shortstop but later was switched to the outfield. Acquired by the St. Louis Cardinals in 1943, Clay soon after was traded to the Cincinnati Reds for whom he played into the 1946 season when an arm injury doomed him to the minors. His four-year batting average for the Reds was .258.
