Card: 1926 Zeenut PCL #NA (Blank Back)
Peter George Daglia (b. February 28, 1906 in Napa, CA – d. March 11, 1952 in Willits, CA) was a pitcher in Major League Baseball. He played in 12 games in the 1932 season for the Chicago White Sox.
Daglia was born in Napa, CA, 50 miles north of San Francisco. In a 13-year minor league career, he pitched 8 seasons for PCL teams Oakland, two for San Francisco and one for Mission (who played in San Francisco). He won in double figures in eight of his 13 minor league seasons, with a high of 21 in 1926 for Twin Falls. He twice won 18 games in a season for Oakland.
By the time he came up with the 1932 White Sox he was already a veteran minor league pitcher, having pitched seven seasons in the minors. With the White Sox, he was the same age as teammate Luke Appling. He was a liquor salesman after his baseball days.
A letter to the editor of Baseball Digest in June 1999 stated that Daglia attended Sacramento High School. Stan Hack attended the same high school and made his major league debut in the same year as Daglia did, but Hack was a few years younger. TheDeadballEra.com says he died at age 45 of coronary thrombosis - he is interred at Tulocay Cemetery in Napa, CA.
