After a successful youth baseball career with National A.C., GABF Class D Champion Borden Autos, and at Central High, Drumm moved into the City A League with the Borden Autos. An infielder for the most part, Drumm was forced into pitching by manager Frank Garcia and responded with four victories in as many starts. He toiled for five more years, including winning 11 of 13 games in 1947. Besides doing well on the mound, Drumm was an excellent fielder and productive batter as his lifetime average of .308 can attest to. In later years he played in the outfield and even caught for such teams as Old Dutch Beer and Canton Road Furniture.
