Biographical Information[edit]

Tony Parisse was in the majors in 1943-44. He also had a long minor league career and managed at a couple of places.

The book To Every Thing a Season: Shibe Park and Urban Philadelphia: 1909-1976 states that it was rumored Parisse was valuable to the wartime Athletics partly because his father ran a butcher shop, getting the club the best meat.

Parisse was already in his 30's when he came to the majors. The SABR minor league database (as of October 2009) shows his minor league career only back to 1939, when he was already 28 and a player-manager.

He played for Drummond in 1937. He managed Wisconsin Rapids in 1947.

He is sometimes called Lou or Louis Parisse.
