Lee Fohl

Born Leo Alexander Fohl, he tried professional baseball first - breaking into the major leagues in 1902 with the Pittsburgh Pirates and finished his playing career one year later with the Cincinnati Nationals. His claim to fame came as a manager. In 1910 he guided Akron to the Ohio-Pennsylvania League pennant, one of two the club had under his direction. Subsequently, Lee managed the Cleveland Indians, St. Louis Browns and the Boston Red Sox.
