Dwight Aden played centerfield for the Indians from 1938 to 1942 and helped lead the Indians to the 1941 championship. An All-Star, Aden notched a .330 batting average while in Spokane and was considered to be one fo the best defensive players in the league at the time, famously committing just one error during his time with the Indians. Along with Levi McCormack, the Indians had one of the quickest and most reliable outfields in the Western International League. Aden served in the Navy during WWII, primarily as a flight instructor, which cut short his playing career at the age of 27.
Aden went on to become the business manager of the Spokane Indians in the mid-1940s. Aden continued to live in Spokane and threw out the first pitch to celebrate the Spokane Indians' 100th anniversary in 2003. He passed away in 2008 at the age of 93.
