Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lawrence William Gilbert (December 3, 1891 - February 17, 1965) was an American outfielder in Major League Baseball and a longtime manager in minor league baseball. A native of New Orleans, Louisiana, who broke into baseball as a southpaw pitcher, Gilbert first became famous as a member of the 1914 "Miracle" Boston Braves. But his major league career lasted only two seasons (the Braves' breakthrough 1914 campaign and 1915). A left-handed batter, he batted a meek .230 with five homers, 29 runs batted in, ten doubles and seven stolen bases. In 1914, Gilbert was a member of the Braves team that went from last place to first place in two months, becoming the first team to win a pennant after being in last place on the Fourth of July.show more
