Letters "Q" and "Z" Can't Really Field a Team of Kellogg's Cards, or Can They?

There are only three players  with Kellogg's baseball cards whose last names begin with "Z".  Adding Dan Quisenberry still only gives a team of four players.

That doesn't seem to be enough to field a team, but there is/was a barnstorming team that began in 1946 that only used four players.  Do you know who that is?

I only saw The King and His Court on television, but they provided an outstanding show during fast-pitch softball exhibitions.  They used a pitcher, catcher, shortstop and first basemen to beat all sorts teams for years.  Check out some of the King (Eddie Feigner) and His Court information and videos that can be found online.

They started out in Walla Walla, Washington, a town I heard of early on from the song before Cub games ("It's a beautiful day for a ball game...from Walla Walla, Washington to Kalamazoo").

This group will need to play out of positions since there are three pitchers, one who is lefty, and a player who only played the outfield or DH in his career.

Pitcher - Dan Quisenberry





First Base - Geoff Zahn


Shortstop - Pat Zachry

Catcher - Richie Zisk



They'd better be like the King and His Court who relied on lots of strikeouts.


FYI

There have been four major league players from Walla Walla and 10 from Kalamazoo.
