Miller Huggins

Miller James Huggins
Inducted to the Hall of Fame in: 1964
Primary team: New York Yankees
Primary position: Manager

“Shrewd” is the word best used to describe Miller Huggins. A smart second baseman who always found a way to get on base, the 5-foot-6-inch “Hug” skippered the St. Louis Cardinals and New York Yankees for 17 seasons, leading the Bronx Bombers to their first six pennants and three World Series championships, effectively beginning the Yankees dynasty. In 1932, a monument to the “Mighty Mite” was dedicated and placed in center field at Yankee Stadium in his memory.

"Huggins was almost like a schoolmaster in the dugout. There was no goofing off. You watched the game, and you kept track not only of the score and the number of outs, but of the count on the batter. At any moment, Hug might ask you what the situation was. "
