[edit] Biographical Information

"I played under three great managers - McCarthy, Bucky Harris and Casey Stengel - and I have to put McCarthy at the top of the list. For my money, he wrote the book." - Tommy Henrich

Hall of Fame manager Joe McCarthy managed 24 years in the majors, winning seven World Series championships. He first managed the Chicago Cubs of Hack Wilson, then the New York Yankees of the veteran Babe Ruth and of Lou Gehrig, and finally was manager of the Boston Red Sox of Ted Williams.

As a young man McCarthy played baseball at Niagara College (now Niagara University) and then had a long minor league playing career from 1907 to 1921. He started managing while still a player, and eventually moved up to the majors.

In 24 seasons of managing, McCarthy's batters led their league in walks 14 times, finished second 4 times, and third four times. Only in his first season of managing, did his team finish lower than 3rd, the 1926 Cubs finished fourth in the NL in walks. In 1956 he was elected to the International League Hall of Fame.
