Shortstop for the Chicago White Sox 1917 - 1920, but was banned form baseball after
the Black Sox scandal. He received $15,000 to lose intentionally to the Cincinnati Reds
in 1919. He went 2 for 25 in that series and committed 8 errors. Later in life he would have a leg amputated because of an old playing wound that never healed correctly.
