    Jimmy Cooney


    Although he cracked 12 consecutive hits for Milwaukee of the American Association in 1923, the slick-fielding Cooney had trouble holding a ML job because of his weak bat. He made an unassisted triple play on May 30, 1927, for the Cubs against the Pirates. In the fourth inning he caught Paul Waner's liner, stepped on second to double Lloyd Waner, and tagged Clyde Barnhart coming down from first. He was the son of Jimmy Cooney Sr., an 1890s NL shortstop, and his younger brother Johnny Cooney was a outfielder/pitcher for 20 years. (BC)
