Fred 'Fritz' Luciano, a right-handed pitcher for the Topeka Owls minor league baseball team, is pictured in this snapshot from 1947. Luciano's record for the Owls in 1947 was 5-5 with a 6.32 ERA. He first joined the Topeka team in 1946, after starting the season with the Chanute Owls, an affiliate of the Topeka franchise. Luciano pitched for seven different teams over the course of his nine-season minor league career. He was a lifelong resident of Bridgeport, Connecticut.
