Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Richard Paul "Red" Smith (May 18, 1904 - March 8, 1978) was an American player and coach in both professional baseball and professional football. A native of Brokaw, Wisconsin, Smith stood 5'9" (175 cm) tall, and weighed 215 pounds (97 kg). A catcher in baseball, he batted and threw right-handed. He played under three of the early 20th century's most famous American sporting coaches-football's Knute Rockne and Curly Lambeau, and baseball's John McGraw. Smith attended the University of Notre Dame, where he played football for Rockne and captained the Fighting Irish varsity baseball team. In 1927, he turned professional in both sports. He appeared in one game for the New York Giants of baseball's National League, where he recorded one putout and made no errors in the field, but did not record an official at bat. He was then farmed to the Jersey City Skeeters of the AA International League.show more
