Eddie Stanky

Biography:Eddie Stanky (September 3, 1916 - June 16, 1999), nicknamed "The Brat", was an American second baseman and manager in Major League Baseball. He played for the Chicago Cubs (1943-1944), Brooklyn Dodgers (1944-1947), Boston Braves (1948-1949), New York Giants (1950-1951), and St. Louis Cardinals (1952-1953).

Born in Philadelphia, Stanky was famous for his ability to draw walks; he drew 100 walks in 6 seasons, twice posting 140. In 1946, Stanky hit just .273, but his 137 walks allowed him to lead the league in OBP with a .436 figure. His best season was probably in 1950 with New York, when he hit an even .300 and led the league in walks (144) and OBP (.460).

An intense competitor, Stanky managed the Cardinals from 1952 through the middle of the 1955 season, and the Chicago White Sox from 1966 through mid-1968. In between, he also spent time as a member of the front offices of the Cardinals and the New York Mets. After almost a decade as head baseball coach at the University of South Alabama, he returned to the majors as manager of the Texas Rangers in 1977, winning his debut game. But, having second thoughts about leaving his adopted state of Alabama, he immediately resigned. His career managerial mark was 467-435 (.518).

Stanky died at age 82 in Fairhope, Alabama.
