Former Browns player, Perry Currin, 82, died of heart failure on January 17, at his home in San Antonio, Texas. He leaves his loving wife of 52 years, Vi Currin, his children Diane Sowell, Sherry Fox, and Chris Currin, ten grandchildren, and many close friends.
He played baseball for only one year with the St. Louis Browns in 1947. At 18, he was one of the youngest players to ever sign in the Major League at that time. His time with the Browns was followed by a short career in the minor leagues.
