Fielder Jones - 1915/16 M101-4 Sporting News

Fielder Allison Jones (1871-1934) managed the 1906 Chicago White Sox “Hitless Wonders” who won the all-Chicago World Series over the Cubs, despite the Northsiders being heavy favorites. The aptly named Fielder played 15 seasons in the Major Leagues with the Brooklyn Bridegrooms/Superbas (1896-1898/1899-1900), the Chicago White Sox (1901-1908) and the St. Louis Terriers of the shirt-lived Federal League (1914-1915). Jones batted over the .300-mark in six of his first seven seasons and seven times overall. He took over the reigns as the White Sox player/manager beginning in 1904 and led the Southsiders to the 1906 World Series title, eventually relinquishing the managerial role in 1908. He also served as player/manager for the Terriers. Fielder managed his teams to within a few games of the pennant in nearly ever season he spend at the helm. He finished his applying days with a .285 career batting average with 1,920 hits, 1,180 runs, 359 stolen bases and 631 runs batted in. As a manager with the White Sox (1904-1908), the Terriers (1914-1915) and the St. Louis Browns (1916-1918), Fielder Jones compiled a 683-582 record with one pennant and one World Series title over 10 years and 1,297 games.
