Milton Joseph Stock (July 11, 1893 – July 16, 1977) Infielder Milt Stock enjoyed a 14-year career with the Giants, Phillies, Cardinals, and the Brooklyn Robins. He batted .289, highlighted by four consecutive seasons hitting over .300 (1919–1922). Stock was a key cog in bringing the Phillies to the 1915 World Series, where they lost to the Red Sox. Thirty-five years later, Stock again assisted Philadelphia’s drive to the pennant. As the Dodgers third-base coach, Stock sent Cal Abrams home in the ninth inning of the season’s pennant-deciding final game. Abrams was tagged out and the Phillies eventually beat Brooklyn for the National League flag. As a boy, Stock also excelled at boxing, basketball, and hockey. When his playing career ended in 1926, he managed for 16 seasons in the minors before taking his vast sports knowledge to the coach’s box. Stock died in 1977 at age 84 following coaching stops in the Cubs organization, Brooklyn, and Pittsburgh.
