William Harold Southworth (March 9, 1893 - November 15, 1969) played 13 seasons in the big leagues with the Indians, Pirates, Braves, Giants and Cardinals from 1913-1929 compiling a .297 batting average with 1,296 hits, 561 RBI and 138 stolen bases. He was a member of two National League pennant winners and won one World Series title in 1926 with the Redbirds. Decent numbers. However, Billy made his biggest impact on the game from his seat in the dugout, where he guided the St. Louis Cardinals (1929, 1940-1945) to three pennants and two World Series titles (1942, 1944), then the Boston Braves (1946-1949, 1950-1951) to the NL pennant in 1948. From 191941-1945, Southworth’s Cardinals averaged 101 wins per season. Billy Southworth finished his career with a 1,064-729 record, boasting an impressive .642 winning percentage. The Veterans Committee elected William Harold Southworth to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2008.
