From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

George Cyril Methodius Susce (August 13, 1907 — February 25, 1986) was an American Major League Baseball catcher for the Philadelphia Phillies (1929), Detroit Tigers (1932), Pittsburgh Pirates (1939), St. Louis Browns (1940) and Cleveland Indians (1941-44). Susce was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He threw and batted right-handed, stood 5 feet, 11½ inches (1.82 m) tall and weighed 200 pounds (91 kg). His son, George Jr., was a major league pitcher.

In 8 seasons he played in 146 Games and had 268 At Bats, 23 Runs, 61 Hits, 11 Doubles, 1 Triple, 2 Home Runs, 22 RBI, 1 Stolen Base, 25 Walks, .228 Batting Average, .301 On-base percentage, .299 Slugging Percentage, 80 Total Bases and 10 Sacrifice Hits.

Susce served as a major league bullpen coach for almost 30 years, for the Indians, Boston Red Sox, Kansas City Athletics, Milwaukee Braves, and the expansion Washington Senators/Texas Rangers. He retired after the 1972 season.

Susce died in Sarasota, Florida at the age of 78. His unusual nickname, "Good Kid," was given to him as a young player because of his eagerness to help with mundane tasks associated with baseball.[1]
