We can't help with math homework, and we don't calculate launch times for NASA. But we can answer just about any question about the Quad-City Area. And if we can't, perhaps you can!

So, ask away.

Answer To The Question:

Q: Who was the baseball player from East Moline who won an all-star game in the 1960s?

A: Dean Stone attended United Township High School in East Moline but actually lived in Silvis. His all-star win came in 1954.

The win was unusual -- Stone did not get a single batter out. Playing for the American League, he entered the game with the AL trailing 9-8 with two outs in the eighth inning. Red Schoendienst, on third, tried to steal home but Stone's throw nailed him for the third out. The AL rallied in the 9th inning to win.

Incidentally, 1954 was both Stone's rookie year and the best of his career. He was 12-10 with a lackluster Washington Senators team that won only 66 games. He bounced around with a half-dozen teams over the next eight years, finishing with a 29-39 lifetime record.
