[edit] Biographical Information

Clarence Mitchell was one of the last legal spitballers. He hit into the only triple play in World Series history, playing for the Brooklyn Robins against the Cleveland Indians in the 1920 World Series, which was turned (unassisted) by Bill Wambsganss. Otto Miller was the runner at first base and Pete Kilduff was on at second.

After his playing career, Mitchell was a coach for the New York Giants in 1932 and 1933. In later years, he operated a tavern in Grand Island, NE.
