WHY YOU SHOULD KNOW HIM:
They say never trust a man with two first names, but Jack Barry was a well-respected member of one of baseball’s most successful teams. Athletics manager Connie Mack signed Barry off the campus of the College of the Holy Cross to play shortstop on what would become his famous $100,000 infield. Barry teamed with second baseman Eddie Collins, as well as Frank Baker and Stuffy McInnis to form one of the most talented foursomes in baseball history. Thefour players were critical to the Athletics winning the American League pennant in 1910, 1911, 1913 and 1914, and World Championships in 1910, 1911, and 1913. Barry enlisted in the Navy and missed one full season serving in World War I. Barry became the head coach at Holy Cross in 1921, and continued in that position for 40 years until his death
