Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jack Erwin Russell (October 24, 1905 - November 3, 1990) was a Major League Baseball player from 1926 to 1940 for the Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, Cleveland Indians, Washington Senators, Detroit Tigers and St. Louis Cardinals. Russell was mainly a pitcher and his career marks were 85 wins, 141 losses, and a 4.46 ERA. After his baseball career ended, Russell settled in Clearwater, FL and was instrumental in raising money to build a baseball stadium, Jack Russell Memorial Stadium, which became the spring training home of the Philadelphia Phillies beginning in 1955 and continuing through 2003, when the team moved to Bright House Networks Field, also in Clearwater.show more
