American first baseman in Major League Baseball (MLB) who played nine seasons with the Philadelphia Athletics (1947–1952), Chicago White Sox (1953–1954), Detroit Tigers (1955) and Cleveland Indians (1955) in the American League.
Fain started his career with the San Francisco Seals of the Pacific Coast League. He was signed by the Philadelphia Athletics prior to the 1947 season where he became a two-time American League batting champion and five time All-Star. Known as one of the Athletics' last stars before moving to Kansas City, he had an explosive temper on and off the field. Eventually it affected his playing ability, and the Athletics traded him after the 1952 season. Fain bounced around the league for a couple of years before retiring in 1955.
Fain became a custom home builder in Georgetown, California, in the 1970s. In 1985 the Placerville, California police department raided his home where they found several marijuana plants in his possession. He was charged with growing marijuana and sentenced to five years probation. In 1988, the police conducted another raid at his home, where he was found growing another 400 plants of marijuana in a barn used as a grow house. Fain was charged with possession to sale marijuana and was held without bail. He was sentenced to 18 months' imprisonment. He led a mostly reclusive lifestyle with his second wife in his final years, with only the occasional interview.
Fain died on 18 October 2001, aged 80, in Georgetown from complications from leukemia and diabetes.
