    Comments on Batters Under 20 To Get A Hit Since 1918

      In another place I discussed Ed Kranepool, the only career New York Met, so I’ll say a few words here about Phil Cavarretta. Born and raised in Chicago, Cavarretta signed with the Cubs before graduating from High School, hit for the cycle in his first minor league game and broke in with the big team all in the same year. He played in three (3) World Series, won a batting title and an MVP award, was a player-manager, and at one time held the 20th century record for most games played for the Cubs—since broken by Ernie Banks, whom he managed in 1953. During Spring Trainging in 1954 he admitted to the press that the Cubs were a 2nd division ball club. Mr. Wrigley was not pleased and fired Cavarretta. And just like that, after 20 years, he was through. The White Sox picked him up and he played another year or so before being released for good. I don’t know, but I think a whole lot of Cubs history can be found in Phil Cavarretta’s career—call him “the Original Mr. Cub” if you will—; but today he’s largely forgotten.
