The Murder of Eddie Gaedel

As an adult, Eddie Gaedel stood just 3'7" and weighed 65 pounds. Although bullied most of his life, Eddie became an overnight sensation in 1951 when he became the first "Little person" to appear in a Major League Baseball game.  Eddie would learn that fame has a dark side though, as a few years later he would tragically die under mysterious circumstances.
