    George McBride

    McBride was the American League's premier defensive shortstop of his day. With Washington, he led the league in fielding four straight years (1912-15), in double plays six times between 1908 and 1915, and in putouts three times. Though he didn't hit for a high average, he was known as Pinch for coming through in the clutch. While managing the Senators in 1921, he was hit in the face by a ball in batting practice, paralyzing one side of his face. He suffered a nervous breakdown and retired at the end of the season, but he later coached for Ty Cobb in Detroit. (JK)
