Max Frederick Bishop (September 5, 1899 - February 24, 1962) was a second baseman in Major League Baseball who played from 1924 through 1935 for the Philadelphia Athletics (1924-1933) and Boston Red Sox (1934-1935). Bishop batted left-handed and threw right-handed. He was born in Waynesboro, Pennsylvania. In a 12-season career, Bishop was a .271 hitter with 41 home runs and 379 RBI in 1338 games played. Bishop was the leadoff hitter for the last three American League pennant-winning Philadelphia Athletics teams of Connie Mack. Nicknamed "Tilly" or "Camera Eye" for his notable ability to judge pitches, Bishop was adept at working counts and drawing walks, as evidenced by his .423 career on base percentage, in front of Athletics sluggers Al Simmons, Mickey Cochrane and Jimmie Foxx.
