Player Biography
Bill Veeck, owner of the Cleveland Indians, St. Louis Browns and Chicago White Sox, broke attendance records with ingenious promotions, outrageous door prizes and interactive fan participation. An inveterate hustler and energetic maverick, he introduced the concept of honoring fans, Bat Day, fireworks, exploding scoreboards, player names on uniforms and even a 3-foot-7-inch player, Eddie Gaedel. “I try not to break the rules, but merely test their elasticity,” Veeck said. He also signed the American League’s first African-American player – Larry Doby in 1947 – and its oldest rookie, 42-year-old Satchel Paige in 1948.
