Art Fletcher burst out of the Texas League where he hit .273 with 35 stolen bases in 1908, his first pro season. He spent his next 2 years as a backup on John McGraw’s Giants before earning the starting job in 1911. That year he helped the Giants win the pennant by hitting .319 with a .400 on-base percentage and 73 runs scored. From 1911 to 1920 he finished in the top four in the league in being hit by pitches. In 5 of the 6 years between 1913 and 1918, Fletcher led the league in this area, finishing second in 1915. His career number of 141 still stands in the top 25 on the all-time hit-by-pitch list. After his playing days, he managed the Phillies from 1923 to 1926 and in 1929 he managed the Yankees for 11 games. Fletcher went on to win several World Series rings as coach of the Murderer’s Row Yankees under Miller Huggins.
