  • Second Base Coach

    I found this to be interesting...

    If High Pockets plays second base (and he did from time to time) and if you let Foxx catch, those nine could field all eight positions on the diamond in an American League Game.

    Interesting facts about the 1932 Philadelphia Athletics.

    They played 154 games. In all 154, All Simmons batted fourth and Jimmie Foxx batted fifth.

    In ALL 154 games.

    Foxx had 213 hits and Simmons finished with 216 hits. (Cochrane was the usual #3 hitter, btw)

    Simmons did so for 33,333 dollars in salary. Foxx for half that at 16,666 dollars.

    It's not Brosius, but you're right that the #9 slot is a 90s guy.

    Hint: There's one guy from the 90s, but the rest are from the 20s and 30s.
    The 90's guy has to be in the #9 slot. How about Scott Broscious?
