Miller Huggins spent thirteen seasons as an excellent defensive second baseman for the Cincinnati Reds and the St. Louis Cardinals positing a .956 lifetime fielding percentage. In 1913 he was named the player/manager of the St. Louis Cardinals and by 1918 he would become the full time manager for the New York Yankees. During his twelve years as the Yankees skipper, Huggins managed his team to six American League Championships and three World Series Championships. In 1927 he managed what is arguably one of the greatest teams in Major League Baseball History when the dangerous hitting Yankees lineup, known as ‘Murderers Row’, won 110 games and swept the Pirates in the World Series.
