Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Robert Abial "Red" Rolfe (October 17, 1908 - July 8, 1969) was an American third baseman, manager and front-office executive in Major League Baseball. A native of Penacook, New Hampshire, he is one of the most prominent players to come from the Granite State. Rolfe, a graduate of Phillips Exeter Academy, also was an Ivy Leaguer: a graduate, then long-time athletic director of Dartmouth College, and (from 1943-46) baseball and basketball coach at Yale University. During his playing career, Rolfe was the starting third baseman on the New York Yankees of the late 1930s. The "Bronx Bombers" of Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Bill Dickey, Lefty Gomez and Red Ruffing won American League pennants from 1936-39 and took all four World Series in which they appeared, winning 16 games and losing only three in Fall Classic play over that span.show more
