Did you know?

George Zorich was related to Vince Yatchak Yatchak played with the Milwaukee Chiefs

from 1940 to 1941 and was killed by a sniper's bullet just prior

to the end of World War II on May 30, 1945.

 

All other sources have Zorich dying in 1962.  Sadly, it appears one 'trusted' source can

spread around false information pretty quickly on the internet.  Let's hope 'facts'

from a trusted source can do the same thing.
