 Biographical Information
Ralph Michaels hit .276 with 1,134 hits in 4,110 at-bats as a minor leaguer. Not a power hitter, he hit only 15 home runs in his career, along with 160 doubles and 41 triples. Perhaps his best season offensively was his very first - in 1922 with the Cedar Rapids Bunnies, Michaels hit .301 with 30 doubles in 129 games.

Following his death, he was interred at St. Mary Church Cemetery in Sharpsburg, PA.
