Cal played in just under two full seasons for the Orioles towards the end of his time in the Bigs. He also played for the Brooklyn Dodgers, Cincinnati Redlegs, Pittsburgh Pirates, and Chicago White Sox. He served in WWII before he played in the Majors, and that probably shortened his time there.
He wore the number 18 over most his career to celebrate his Jewish heritage; 18 is a spiritual number of the Hebrew word for life. He was inducted into the B'nai B'rith Jewish American Sports Hall of Fame in 1996, one year before his death.
Cal died from a heart attack on February 25, 1997 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and was buried in his Brooklyn Dodgers uniform. That really shows his lifelong dedication to baseball.
