Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"During his playing days, Charley O'Leary teamed up with Miller Huggins as a formidable double play combination for the 1913 Cardinals . He played in 3 World Series for the Detroit Tigers and hit .226 lifetime. After he became a coach for the Yankees (1921-1930), Charley was a trusted advisor to manager Huggins . The gregarious Irishman was also a good friend to Babe Ruth , carousing with him on occasion and leading the cheering when Babe slugged his 60th homer in 1927. Charley also coached for the Cubs and then the St. Louis Browns before getting out of baseball in 1937." - The Sporting News (Conlon Collection Baseball Card #116, 1991 The Sporting News Publishing Company, Back of Card)

Charley O'Leary Baseball Card
Charley O'Leary | 1911 T205 Baseball Card (#142) | Baseball Almanac Collection
On September 30, 1934 , Charley O'Leary pinch hit for George Blaeholder in the sixth inning, singling off Elden Auker , and scoring a run that same inning. O'Leary, who was 58 years old, became the oldest Major League Baseball player to record a hit AND, the oldest to score a run - two records that are still in the Baseball Almanac through today.

On July 9, 1911, Charley O'Leary successfully performed the hidden ball trick. The Washington Post described the incident, "In the second inning, after Gessler and Lelivelt had hit and McBride had sacrificed, O'Leary worked the old 1812 hidden-ball trick on Lelivelt . Charley took a throw at first, and instead of throwing the ball back to the pitcher, O'Leary darted over and pinned him."
