Jimmie Foxx, Mickey Cochrane, Lefty Grove, Connie Mack...still thinking.

He played with many different teams so the list must be really long. Did he play with Ted Williams?

Lyons (White sox), Greenberg, Gehringer onTigers,
Other A's would be Cobb, Speaker, Wheat and Collins

Don't forget to give me a number you think might be correct as well.

Hint...

A couple of the names listed as possibilities are not correct but most are. And we're still not even half way there yet.

Oops someone already posted. But I will add he played for the Red Sox at the end, Ted was at war but maybe Doerr was there. And Goslin was probably on that Detroit team. Also not sure when he started but Appling maybe on the White Sox.

OK I'll guess that somewhere in the 30s he overlapped with Rick Ferrell.

Rick Ferrell is correct. Not quite that many in total though...

I think my last guess is Joe Cronin who probably was managing that wartime Red Sox team. No recollection of managers in Detroit and Chicago. He probably did some brief stints with a couple of other teams and that's where the missing names are coming from but not sure.
