(1926 - )
A native of Lacombe, LA, Floyd Fogg graduated from Slidell High School where he excelled in baseball and basketball before he signed a professional baseball contract with the Chicago Cubs organization in 1946. He debuted with the Hopkinsville Hoppers in the Kitty League later that year.
A versatile player and mainly a third baseman, Fogg played every infield position except second base, but he was also known for his hitting. In nine seasons of professional baseball, he averaged close to 30 doubles and 20 home runs and over 90 runs batted in per season.
He was a member of the 1951 and 1952 New Orleans Pelicans under managers Rip Sewell and Danny Murtaugh.
Fogg retired from baseball after the 1954 season with a .287 career batting average. He raised his family and still makes his home in Slidell.
