 Biographical Information
"The Athletics drafted Joe Giebel, a former Washington amateur, who caught for the Savannah team, of the South Atlantic League, this season, and did more than his share to help that organization win a pennant." - from The Sporting Life, September 20, 1913
Giebel was born in Washington, DC in 1891, the only major leaguer born there that year. He had played for Savannah in 1911-13, where he was the same age as Dick Robertson, a teammate all three years. Robertston also came up to the majors that season, but with a different team.
