Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. William Francis Carrigan (October 22, 1883 - July 8, 1969), nicknamed "Rough," was a Major League baseball catcher. He was born in Lewiston, Maine. Carrigan started his career as a platoon catcher and played all ten seasons with the Boston Red Sox. Midway through the 1913 baseball season, he replaced Jake Stahl as manager of the defending World Series champion Red Sox as a player-manager. He then led Boston to a second-place finish in 1914 and two world championships in 1915 and 1916, compiling an 8-2 record as a manager in World Series play. Until Terry Francona duplicated the feat in 2007, he was the only manager to have won two World Series titles with Boston.show more
