  • General Info
General Information
Description
John Oscar Dickshot commonly known as "Ugly" Johnny Dickshot was a Major League Baseball outfielder for the Pittsburgh Pirates from 1936 to 1938, the New York Giants in 1939, and the Chicago White Sox from 1944 to 1945. He won the nickname "Ugly" because of his self-proclaimed status as the "ugliest man in baseball". Born and raised in Waukegan, Illinois, Dickshot began his professional career in the early 1930s playing for the Milwaukee Brewers, which was then a minor league team. He entered the majors with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1935. In a time before baseball salaries took off, Dickshot worked at a North Chicago steel mill in the off-season. He moved to the Hollywood Stars in the Pacific Coast League in 1941. In 1943, he hit .352 for the Stars and had a 33-game hitting streak. He joined the White Sox in 1944 and had his best major league season in 1945, his last year in the majors, when he had a .302 batting average with 58 RBIs, 10 triples and 18 stolen bases in 486 at-bats. Soon after his retirement, Dickshot opened a tavern called the Dugout in Waukegan.
