Miller Huggins - 1915/16 M101-4 Sporting News

Miller James Huggins (1879-1929) was a speedy second baseman with a knack for stealing bases and an intensity that drove him to become one of the most successful managers that baseball has ever seen. Known as The Mighty Mite for his 5’6” stature, Huggins handled some of the biggest players, let alone biggest names, in the game. Huggins managed the St. Louis Cardinals (1913-1917) and the New York Yankees (1918-1929) winning six American League pennants and three World Series titles (1923, 1917, 1928). Miller led a heavy hitting Murderers’ Row team, the 1927 Yankees, that included Ruth, Gehrig, Meusel and Lazzeri to 110 victories and a sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates in the World Series. The 1927 Yankees team is widely considered the greatest team ever! In 17 years at the helm, Huggins had a career record of 1413-1134. The Veterans Committee elected Miller James Huggins to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1964.
