Chuck Connors was born on this day in 1921 and died in 1992. We remember Chuck Connors for that wonderful western, “The Rifleman.” In fact, I try to watch it every Saturday morning. The show was on from 1958 to 1963.
Before the rifle, he played baseball. His career was brief or a just two major league seasons: 1949 Dodgers & 1951 Cubs. Connors also played winter ball in Cuba, as my dad always reminded us when we were watching his famous show.
