Frank Higgins

1934-36 Batter-Up (R318)

Michael Franklin “Pinky” Higgins (May 27, 1909 - March 21, 1969) hit for the cycle on August 6, 1933 against the Washington Senators and also hit for .300 or better four times in his 14-year career. In his rookie season, Higgins hit .314 with 178 hits including 12 triples and 13 home runs while driving in 99 runs and finished 10th in the American League in batting. Pinky, a nickname that was given to him as a child and one in which he despised, played for the Philadelphia Athletics (1930, 1933-1936), the Boston Red Sox (1937-1938, 1946) and the Detroit Tigers (1939-1944, 1946). Higgins’ best season came in 1934 as he hit .330 with 179 hits and 16 home runs earning his first of three All-Star Game selections and his first of five MVP considerations. Higgins was a decent third baseman with a .935 career fielding percentage. In the 1940 World Series, Pinky Higgins had a record ten chances in Game Four of the Fall Classic against the Cincinnati Reds as Detroit fell in seven games. He also appeared in the 1946 World Series as his Boston team lost to the St. Louis Cardinals in another seven game series. Over 14 years, Pinky Higgins batted .292 with 1,941 hits including 374 doubles and 140 home runs, scored 930 runs and drove in another 1,075 runs in over 1,800 games. After his playing days ended, Higgins served as manager for the Boston Red Sox for eight seasons compiling a 560-556 record in 1,119 games.
