Reading Coal Barons

From BR Bullpen

The Reading Coal Barons joined the International League in 1919 and struggled all year, going 51-93 and finishing last in the IL. Red Dooin and Pop Kelchner both managed the team during the year. Myrl Brown (18-21, 2.93) and Dean Barnhardt (10-7, 3.60) helped sustain the team on the mound - the club went 23-65 when one of those two did not figure in the decision. 1B Mike Konnick (.335, .504 slugging) led the offense. The club was renamed the Reading Marines in 1920.
