Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jonathan Joseph "Mandy" Brooks (August 18, 1897 - June 17, 1962) was a right-handed outfielder in Major League Baseball for the Chicago Cubs. Brooks' major-league debut came at the relatively advanced age of 27 on May 30, 1925. He went on to be a regular for the Cubs that season, playing the second-most games of any outfielder. Every one of his defensive appearances came in center field. It was a rather successful rookie campaign; Brooks trailed only future Hall of Famer Gabby Hartnett for the club's home run lead by slugging 14 round-trippers, good enough to finish tenth in the entire National League in that category. Brooks was also second on the Cubs in RBI (72) and slugging percentage (.513). He finished his first season with a respectable .281 batting average.show more
