"Look at Mel Ott over there. He's a nice guy, and he finishes second. Now look at the Brat (Eddie Stanky). He can't hit, can't run, can't field. He's no nice guy, but all the little son-of-a-bitch can do is win." - Leo Durocher in Who's Who in Baseball History (Lloyd Johnson, Barnes & Noble Books, Eddie Stanky , Page 84)

In Baseball Digest (November 1995, 'It's Not How You Play the Game...', Page 20), they shared the following tale from the dugout, "Years ago, ex- White Sox players used to sit around and tell stories about Eddie Stanky, their one-time manager .

"In the spring," remembered Tommie Agee , "Stanky would get us all together and say, 'I want 100 percent out of every man. That's all I ask. I don't care about results as long as I see every man hustling.' "Well," said Agee , "we all felt pretty good about that, and we go out and run and hustle. Man, I mean we're breaking our backs, but we're losing anyway. After about a week, Stanky calls another meeting, 'To hell with all this hustle,' he says, 'I want results!'"

Eddie Stanky Manager of the Year
Eddie Stanky Wins Manager of the Year | The Tribune | November 27, 1952
The Brat from Kensington - who was born in Philly, but grew up in Kensington - was incredibly patient at the plate, drawing more than one-hundred walks in six different seasons. So talented at earning bases on balls, that when he walked to first 148 times in 1945 , he shattered the Dodgers franchise record (119 walks by Dolph Camilli in 1938 ) for walks in a season, a record that remains in tact through today! [ MLB.com Sortable Stats ]

Stan Musial , in 1946 , led the National League in batting average (.365), slugging percentage (.587), games played (156), at-bats (624), runs scored (124), hits (228), total bases (366), singles (134), doubles (50), triples (20), extra base hits (86), easily winning the MVP Award . Why mention this dominant season here? Eddie Stanky, in 1946 , only had a .273 batting average, but led the league in bases on balls (137), enabling him to take the on base percentage "title" from Stan the Man !

Did you know that Eddie Stanky was the last NEW YORK Giants player to lead the league in on base percentage ? Too easy? Did you know he once walked to first in a Major League record seven consecutive at-bats (across 2 games)? [ Bases On Balls Records ]
