Hi, I'm just learning about the two great men Kansas had to offer to Major League Baseball; one was Elden Auker and the other was Walter Johnson. Elden lived and grew up an hour and 40 minutes from where I live. I hope one day to go up to Norcatur and see if there is a memorial for him there. My doctor told me to start throwing sidearm and submarine; these two guys from Kansas I've been learing from their pictures and whatever videos I can find. I will be praying for Elden and God bless.
We were pleased to know Elden Auker when he was President of Bay State Abrasives Co. in
Westboro, MA and are now proud owners of a fine wrought-iron table and 6 chairs originally bought by him for his patio in Westboro.
Major League Baseball has lost one of its finest gentleman.
Thank you for giving us your fond memories in book form.
God bless the Auker family.
A fan favorite for over 70 years, God bless you Mr. Auker. Thank you for autographing my baseball & answering my questions. Your wonderful and interesting stories will be told to many baseball fans yet to come. My thoughts & prayers are with your wife & son.
How nice to have this opportunity to express my condolences. While I never had the opportunity to meet Elden when he visited my hometown of Norcatur, KS, my parents and brother did. I kept up with his life via Bob Rapp & the Norcatur News Sheet. What a loss it is and the family will be in our thoughts and prayers. We'll think of him often when we gather for community functions at the Elden Auker Park in Norcatur.
To a real major leaguer, God guide and guard the Auker family
May God Bless you and Your entire family they will be included in my prayers.
Your fine record as a major league pitcher (130-101, 4.42 ERA) will not be forgotten by the fans who directly followed or later became aware of your superb baseball career with the Detroit Tigers, Boston Red Sox, and St. Louis Browns. - Godspeed, Elden Auker - and thanks for the memories.
