[edit] Biographical Information

Ike Boone had a .370 career minor league batting average, the highest all-time. In 1929, Boone had one of the great seasons of all time for the San Francisco Missions. He hit .407 with 323 hits in 754 at bats. Included in the 323 hits, 49 doubles, 8 triples, and 55 home runs. Boone drove in 218 runs in 198 games in '29. These numbers were good enough to establish the season high total bases record of 553.

The next year, all Ike did was hit .448, and drive in 98 runs in only 83 games. Ike might have had more but these numbers were good enough to get him a promotion to the the Big Leagues again - this time with the Brooklyn Dodgers.

Ike hit well during his years in the majors but apparently his iron glove and lack of speed were not enough to keep him there.

His major league batting average pulls his combined major/minor batting average down below Ox Eckhardt and Ty Cobb.

Played RF for & managed Toronto Maple Leafs of the International League in 1934.

Ike managed for Toronto from 1934 through 1936 and 1937 Jackson Senators.

Brother of Dan Boone. Ike and his brother Danny combined for 101 minor league home runs in 1929. In 1957 he was elected to the International League Hall of Fame and in 2003 he was elected to the Pacific Coast League Hall of Fame.
