Career highlights and awards

Michael Joseph McNally [Minooka Mike] (September 13, 1893 – May 29, 1965) was a reserve infielder in Major League Baseball who played for three different teams between 1915 and 1925. Listed at 5 ft 11 in (1.80 m), 150 lb., McNally batted and threw right-handed. He was born in Minooka, Pennsylvania.

A clever reserve infielder and basically a line drive hitter, Mc Nally entered the majors in 1915 with the Boston Red Sox, playing for them five years before joining the New York Yankees (1921–1924) and Washington Senators (1925). His most productive season came with the 1920 Red Sox, when he posted career-highs in games (93), runs (42), hits (80), stolen bases (13) and on-base percentage (.326), while hitting a .256 average.

In a 10-season career, McNally was a .238 hitter (257-for-1078) with 169 runs and 85 RBI in 492 games, including 16 doubles, six triples, one home run and 40 stolen bases. As an infielder, he made 415 appearances at second base (181), third base (167), shortstop (60) and first base (7), while posting a collective .951 fielding percentage.

McNally also played on five American League pennant winners, appearing in the World Series with Boston in 1916 and for New York in 1921 and 1922, though he did not play in the 1915 and 1923 Series. In nine appearances, he hit .200 (4-for-20) with one RBI, two stolen base, four runs, and stole home plate in Game One of 1921 Series.

Following his playing retirement, McNally managed in the minor leagues from 1927 to 1938 for the Binghamton Triplets (1927–29), Wilkes-Barre Barons (1930–32, 1937–38) and Williamsport Grays (1933–36). He posted a 872–781 record for a .528 winning percentage, including four first places and the 1934 New York-Penn League championship title with the Williamsport Grays. After that, he worked during almost two decades for the Cleveland Indians as a scout and farm club director.

McNally died in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, at age 72.
