Frank Chance

1915/16 M101-5 Sporting News

Frank Leroy Chance (September 9, 1877 - September 15, 1924) was a key member of the turn-of-the-century Chicago Cubs as player manager winning four National League Championships from 1906-1910, winning two World Series titles (1907, 1908). He earned the nickname “The Peerless Leader” as a strict manager who required his players to “do it my way or we meet after the game and let our fists decide who is right.” The rough-and-tumble Frank Chance led by example, leading the National League twice in stolen bases (1903, 1906). During his 17-year career with the Chicago Cubs (1898-1912) and the New York Yankees (1913-1914), Chance hit .298 with 1,273 hits and 405 stolen bases. The Chicago Cubs 116 win total during the 1906 campaign remains a Major League record. The Veterans Committee elected Frank Leroy Chance to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1946.
