Pitching for the Cubs in the early 1920s, Kaufmann was tutored by Grover Alexander.
He was 14-10 in 1923 and 16-11 the next year, his best seasons. A good hitter, his
two home runs on the Fourth of July, 1925 made him one of a handful of pitchers to
homer twice in one game. From 1938 to 1961 he worked for the Cardinals as a minor
league manager, ML coach, and scout.
