A memorial for former Major League baseball player and Marion native Charley Faust was placed this past week at the Marion Baseball/Softball Complex. Faust played in only two games for the New York Giants but was a member of the team for three pennant-winning seasons in a row. He was considered a “good-luck charm” for the team and is featured in the book, “Victory Faust: The Rube Who Saved McGraw’s Giants.”
