Batting Average 1.00 – George Abrams
George Allen Abrams was a Major League Baseball pitcher who played for one season. He pitched in three games for the Cincinnati Reds in the 1923 Cincinnati Reds season. A single in his only at-bat left Abrams with a rare MLB career batting average of 1.000. He was picked up by the Reds when he went 18-5 for the 1922 Enid Oklahoma Harvesters.

The Abrams Chart
Mr. Abrams has two incredible stelliums in his chart. One in the Twelfth House and then another in the mutable sign of Sagittarius that goes from the Twelfth into the First House. Basically his chart is a Bundle except for that Neptune handle in the Seventh House of teamwork, making him a rather riveting figure on his team.
He also has a lot of planets in the Southern (upper) Hemisphere of his map, showing his ability to not be deeply affected by the actions of other people around him and so distance himself from the hubbub and fray. With a Southern emphasis his eyes are firmly on watching and waiting for the main chance, rather than bonding with those around him. Since there is so much in the Twelfth House, this suggests that Mr. Abrams was a strong spiritual man and saw his life in those terms.
Like a true mutable, he change careers, moved several times and then entered the Navy in World War II. He was for twenty-eight years was a district manager for Acushnet Golf Company (owners of Titleist Golf Balls & Clubs) of New Bedford, Massachusetts in Evanston Illinois though it does seem he travelled around the Midwest alot.
He became an avid golfer and retired Clearwater Florida where he died in the Morton Plant Hospital on December 5, 1986. He was buried in Clearwater as well, and that’s about all we know.¹

- Marc Edmund Jones also has a George Abrams listed in his 1000 Nativities in the back of the book “Sabian Symbols” but that fellow was pugilist though during World War II did play baseball while in the Navy.*
