Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. James Robert Shawkey (December 4, 1890 - December 31, 1980) was born to John William Shawkey and Sarah Catherine Anthony, in Sigel, Pennsylvania. He was a right-handed major league pitcher from 1913 to 1927. Shawkey moved from Slippery Rock State College to an independent league in 1911, then to the American League in 1912 as a pitcher for Connie Mack's Philadelphia Athletics. In 1915, Mack sold him to the New York Yankees where he remained (except for a brief service with the U.S. Navy during World War I when he served on the battleship Arkansas for eight months) until 1931. Shawkey also served as the Yankees' manager after the death of Miller Huggins, for the 1930 season, guiding the Yankees to a third-place finish.show more
