George “Pinch” McBride was the prototypical great-glove, no-bat player. Even with an anemic .218 lifetime batting average, he played in the big leagues for 16 seasons because he was one of the best—if not the best—shortstop in the American League for several years. Known for his great range and acrobatic fielding plays, McBride led the American League in fielding for four straight seasons (1912–1915). From all indications, he only hit well in clutch situations, thus earning his nickname, “Pinch.” Late in the 1921 season, while managing the Senators, McBride was seriously injured when he was hit in the face with a ball, which led to his retirement. He coached for the Detroit Tigers in the mid- to late 1920s before returning to Milwaukee, where he had started his career with his hometown team in 1901.
