George M. Uhaze

I was looking for some info on the New York Blue Sox in the late 1940s and early 1950s when I came across this image of George Uhaze.

That's a rather unique name.  So I looked him up on BaseballReference.  Here's his player page.

It seems that he was in the Boston farm system for a number of years.  A bit more searching provided this story from 1946.

Since BaseballReference didn't have much info on the man, I dug a little more.

"United States Social Security Death Index," database,
FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JK1H-V4X : 20 May 2014), George M Uhaze, 13 Jun 1996;
citing U.S. Social Security Administration, Death Master File, database
(Alexandria, Virginia: National Technical Information Service, ongoing).

I found George in the 1930 Census.  But under the name George Uyhazi.  The maternal grandfather in the family is Czechoslovakian.

"United States Census, 1930", database with images,
FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:X4XN-BDY : 8 December 2015),
George Uyhazi in entry for George Kicainko, 1930.
We can add a photo, a birth date and a death date for George Uhaze.

I did not find him on FindAGrave.
