Martin, (Johnny Leonard Roosevelt) “Pepper”

(1904–65) baseball player; born in Temple, Okla. A third baseman/outfielder for the St. Louis Cardinals (1928–44), he was one of the stars of the famous "Gas House Gang" that won pennants in 1928, 1931, and 1934. Nicknamed, "the Wild Horse of the Osage," he batted .500 in the 1931 World Series in a performance that endures in baseball folklore.
