#65: Frankie Frisch

Frisch played baseball, football, and basketball at Fordham University (New York City) where his speed earned him the name “The Fordham Flash” which stuck with him throughout his baseball career. Frisch went directly before graduating to the Giants in 1919. He played the infield, mainly at second base, through the 1926 season and was then traded to the St. Louis Cardinals, where he played at second and third base through the 1937 season and also managed (1933–38).

He was a switch hitter who hit for an average of .300 or more in 13 of his 19 seasons and over his entire career, was north of .300.

In addition to his solid batting average, Frisch employed his tremendous speed, leading the league in stolen bases for three seasons in 1921 (49), 1927 (48), and in 1931 (28).

He later managed the Pittsburgh Pirates (1940–46) and the Chicago Cubs (1949–51), and became a radio sports broadcaster in the 1940s and a radio and television broadcaster in New York City in the 1950s.

Frisch was voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1947.
