Hall Of Famer
During a 13-year big league career as a second baseman, Miller Huggins developed the leadership qualities that helped him become one of the game's top managers. The 5-foot, 6-inch Huggins, known as The Mighty Mite, started out as a player-manager with the Cardinals before heading to the Yankees in 1918. He led New York to six pennants and three World Series titles, and his 1927 Murderers' Row club, which won 110 games before sweeping the World Series, is considered one of baseball's greatest teams.
Elected to the Hall of Fame in 1964
