  • Cubs '45 Manager?

    Which hall of famer managed the Cubs in 1945?
    "It kills me to lose. If I'm a troublemaker, and I don't think that my temper makes me one, then it's because I can't stand losing. That's the way I am about winning, all I ever wanted to do was finish first."

    -Jackie Robinson

      Grimm is in the HOF?

      When did that happen?

                    I'm not sure you even know the answer, unless Grimm is in some obscure hall of fame we don't know about.

                        One scenario I can imagine is Grimm was ejected from a game, or missed some time due to illness or personal reasons, and an HOF'er filled in. I have no idea who was on the coaching staff of Cubs in 1945 and can't attempt even a guess.

                          Perhaps...

                          Let's recap the coaching staff from the 1945 team:
                          Roy Johnson
                          Red Smith
                          Milt Stock

                          None are HOF'ers

                            I wonder who 55 chmps thought was the manager, because Grimm was the manager. And he is not in the HOF.

                              maybe you guys are right, but my friend showed me a picture of the 1945 Cubs and it said that Jimmie Foxx was the manager.
