Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Urban James Shocker (August 22, 1890 - September 9, 1928), born Urbain Jacques Shockor in Cleveland, Ohio, was a Major League Baseball pitcher for the New York Yankees and St. Louis Browns from 1916 to 1928. As a prelude to his major league career, Shocker spent the bulk of the 1916 season demoted by the Yankees to Toronto of the International League for seasoning and to prove himself. Notably, in 1916 the Yankees had yet to garner a single World Series crown while the Red Sox had two under their belt and would win their third that season. Shocker posted a marvelous 15-3 and strung together 54 consecutive scoreless innings.show more
