A local kid on the Mets. Others listed their hobbies as sports but Ed listed Athletics.
IT"S A FACT - in 1934 the majors had 10 playing managers.
Not on the card. There were only 16 teams in 1934 so that's a lot of player managers. The list included Rogers Hornsby, Bill Terry, Joe Cronin, Frankie Frisch, Mickey Cochrane and Pie Traynor. Since 1954 there have only been nine player managers.
Those nine in 62 years included Joe Torre (18 days; 2 at-bats) and Harry Walker (hadn't played in four years; batted 14 times).
