George William “Mule” Haas (October 15, 1903 - June 30, 1974) was a victim of Connie Mack’s gutting of the Philadelphia Athletics in 1932 in order to keep the franchise from folding. Mule was shipped to the Chicago White Sox with All-Star Jimmy Dykes and Hall of Famer Al Simmons for cash. Haas came up briefly in with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1925, before returning to the bigs for good with Philadelphia in 1928. He played centerfield and first for the Athletics (1928-1932, 1938) and the White Sox (1933-1937). During his 12-year career, he hit .300 or better three times and had over 150 hits four times. Haas was a member of two Philadelphia Athletics World Series champions in 1929 and 1930. Mule blasted two series changing home runs in the 1929 World Series against the Chicago Cubs to help the A’s capture the title. Mule Haas finished his career following the 1938 season with 1,257 hits including 254 doubles, 706 runs, 496 RBI and a .292 batting average.
