Player Biography
Considered exceedingly tall for his era, George Kelly was alternately referred to as “Highpockets” or “Long George.” The fancy-fielding first baseman used his height to its full advantage, snagging many errant tosses and making an already stellar New York Giants infield much better. A key contributor to four consecutive pennants (1921-1924), Kelly was a consistent run producer once described by John McGraw as having “more important hits for me than any other player I ever had.” Kelly was also a streaky power hitter and, in 1924, stroked seven home runs in a six-game span.
