 Biographical Information
Stan Spence played nine seasons in the majors and was a strong hitter.

Stan was named to four All-Star teams, all while he was with the Washington Senators.
Stan had played minor league ball from 1935 to 1940, three times hitting over .310. After his major league days he played several more years in the minors.
