Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. John Augustus "Josh" Billings (November 30, 1891 - December 30, 1981) was a backup catcher in Major League Baseball who played for three different teams between the 1913 and 1923 seasons. Listed at 5' 11," 165 lb., Billings batted and threw right-handed. He was born in Grantville, Kansas. Before playing professional baseball, Billings was a star player at Kansas State University (1910) and Oklahoma State University (1911-12). Billings played from 1913 to 1918 for the Cleveland Naps (renamed the Indians in 1915). In 1919, he was traded to the St. Louis Browns in exchange for Les Nunamaker. In St. Louis he received considerably more playing time than he had in Cleveland.show more
