Elden Auker Injured, Indians Edge Tigers

September 25, 1935 Indians 3, Tigers 2 (92-55)

Chief Hogsett did all he could to win the game in relief of Elden Auker. Auker was hit on the wrist by a come backer in the first inning. While no bones were broken, the World Series was coming up and the Tigers needed all their good arms ready to play the Chicago Cubs.

Hogsett homered to drive in one of the Tigers’ runs and Billy Rogell drove in the other with an RBI single in the second inning.

I’ve been trying to figure this out for years: Is this Elden Auker the same Elden Auker who became a major real estate developer in the Flint-area in the 70s – 90s?
