Max Carey

Biography:Max Carey (January 11, 1890 - May 30, 1976) was an American center fielder in Major League Baseball who starred for the Pittsburgh Pirates. He was born in Terre Haute, Indiana. During his 20-year career, he led the league in stolen bases ten times and finished with 738 swipes, a National League record until 1974 and the 9th-highest total in major league history through 2005.

Carey played for the Pirates from his arrival in the league in 1910 until 1926, winning a World Series championship in 1925. He was known as a skilled fielder and excellent base stealer. He regularly stole 40 or more bases and maintained a favourable steal percentage; in 1922 he stole 51 bases and was only caught twice. He also stole home 33 times in his career, second best to Ty Cobb's 50 on the all time list.

Carey played his final three and a half years with the Brooklyn Robins. He retired in 1929, but went on to manage the Dodgers from 1932 to 1933, as well as the Milwaukee Chicks and the Fort Wayne Daisies of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League.

Carey was born Max Carnarius, but changed the name at the request of struggling baseball announcers.

Carey was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1961. He died at age 86 in Miami, Florida.
