Description Edit | History

Ethan Nathan Allen (January 1, 1904 in Cincinnati, Ohio - September 15, 1993 in Brookings, Oregon) was game designer and major league baseball player, finishing his career with a batting average of .300. He holds the University of Cincinnati record for the highest batting average at .475). After his retirement, he was the National League’s director of motion pictures. He had a master's from Columbia University. His other Ivy League connection included a stint as Yale University baseball coach from 1946 until 1968 where one of his players was future U.S. president George Herbert Walker Bush.

In 1946, he was pictured on the Wheaties cereal box, a promotion that may have been connected with his board game. He designed his game All-Star Baseball for boys between the ages 9 and 12 and considered it very odd that the game developed following among adults. It is believed that he copyrighted different game, but most appear to be unpublished as he said that he could "get into a game company to demonstrate them."
