Ethan Nathan Allen (January 1, 1904 - September 15, 1993) was the inventor of the Cadasco-Ellis board game All Star Baseball in the 1940s and the game remains available today. Allen was a consistent hitting outfielder for 13 seasons with the Cincinnati Reds ((1926-1930), New York Giants (1930-1932), St. Louis Cardinals (1933), Philadelphia Phillies 91934-1936), Chicago Cubs (1936) and St. Louis Browns (1937-1938). He had seven seasons (four full seasons) hitting above the .300-mark and led the National League in doubles with 42 in 1934. Ethan Allen retired with 1,325 hits, 623 runs, 255 doubles, 501 RBI and a.300 career batting average. Allen went on to become the head baseball coach at Yale University from 1946 to the late 1960s, guiding them the first two College World Series finals in 1947 and 1948. Ethan Allen was head coach when former President George H.W. Bush captained the Bulldog team.
