Biographical Information[edit]

Harry Grabiner was the longtime General Manager of the Chicago White Sox.

As a teen, Grabiner and his brother Joe went to work at South Side Park selling scorecards, peanuts, and tickets. Sox owner Charles Comiskey later promoted him to the team's front office. When the team's traveling secretary died in 1915, Grabiner was named club secretary and vice president, a position he held until 1945.
