Player Biography
Mickey Cochrane batted .320 during his 13-year career and excelled behind the plate. He also possessed that special trait – a fierce, competitive spirit – which gave him exceptional leadership qualities. “Black Mike” sparked the Philadelphia Athletics pennant-winning teams in 1929, 1930 and 1931, hitting .331, .357 and .349, respectively. As player-manager for the Detroit Tigers from 1934 to 1937, he guided the team to a league championship in 1934 and the World Series title in 1935. A beaning in 1937 ended his playing career.
