Emmett McCann was a Philadelphia boy who became the youngest player in the American League in 1920 when he appeared with the Philadelphia Athletics in 13 games. Connie Mack sometimes found prospects in the local high school leagues, and McCann had played for West Philadelphia High School. His first name is spelled Emmet in some sources.
In both seasons, Chick Galloway was the regular shortstop. In 1920, McCann hit better, but in 1921, Galloway hit better.
He committed suicide at age 35.
The book Baseball Visions of the Roaring Twenties has a photo of McCann with Portland in 1922.
