Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Harry Perry Chappas (born October 26, 1957 in Mount Rainier, Maryland) was a shortstop with the Chicago White Sox from 1978 until 1980. Though he appeared in only 72 career games, he became a cult hero on the South Side due primarily to his stature. Chappas was measured by Harry Caray and publicly declared to be 5'3," an inch or two shorter than established star Freddie Patek. He was one of the shortest players in Major League history, although Chappas stated in an interview in Sports Illustrated that he was closer to 5'5," and implied that team owner Bill Veeck exaggerated his short stature for publicity reasons.
