Commissioner Happy Chandler lifts the ban on major league players who had jumped to the Mexican League. The ruling allows former major league stars like Sal Maglie to return to the big leagues.  Lou Klein will be the first jumper to make a major-league box score, successfully pinch-hitting onJune 16.

Happy Chandler, Lou Klein, Mexican League, Sal Maglie
