Johnny Cooney Stats

Johnny Cooney was born on Monday, March 18, 1901, in Cranston, Rhode Island. Cooney was 20 years old when he broke into the big leagues on April 19, 1921, with the Boston Braves. His biographical data, year-by-year hitting stats, fielding stats, pitching stats (where applicable), career totals, uniform numbers, salary data and miscellaneous items-of-interest are presented by Baseball Almanac on this comprehensive Johnny Cooney baseball stats page.

"He (Johnny Cooney) would start his wind up, then, in the act of hurling the ball, pause a fraction of a second before letting go of the sphere. This, when properly done, would throw the batters off balance. However, batters study pitchers and when one of their hereditary enemies upon the slab invents a freak variation like Cooney's specialty, they learn to watch for it. In baseball the expected play is already half defeated." - John J. Ward in Baseball Magazine (April 1927)
