Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. William David Shores (May 26, 1904 in Abilene, Texas - February 19, 1984 in Purcell, Oklahoma), was a Major League Baseball player who played pitcher from 1928-1936. He would play for the Philadelphia Athletics, Chicago White Sox, and New York Giants. Bill Shores was the first major league player to wear uniform number 13, while playing for the A's in 1931. The number 13 was not routinely issued to players, except by request. Major League Baseball (MLB) is the highest level of professional baseball in the United States and Canada, consisting of teams that play in the National League and the American League. The two leagues merged in 2000 into a single MLB organization led by the Commissioner of Baseball after 100 years as separate legal entities.show more
