Bill Carrigan

Biography:Bill Carrigan (October 22, 1883 - July 8, 1969), nicknamed "Rough", was a baseball catcher and right-handed batter for the Boston Red Sox in 1906 (when the team was known as the Americans), and from 1908-1916. He was born in Lewiston, Maine.

Carrigan started his career as a platoon catcher. In 1913 he took the defending World Series champion Red Sox as a player-manager. Carrigan led Boston to a second place in 1914 and two World Championships in 1915 and 1916. Then, he quit his baseball career to become a banker in his homeland. He returned to the game in 1927 as a manager for the Red Sox, but the team finished in last place for three straight seasons. (Admittedly, their records the rest of the decade weren't all that much better.)

Carrigan was a .257 10-year career hitter, with six home runs and 235 RBI in 709 games. He compiled a 489-500 managerial record in seven seasons and an 8-2 mark in two World Series.

Bill Carrigan died in Lewiston, Maine, at age of 85. He was selected to the Boston Red Sox Hall of Fame in 2004.
