Fred CLARKE (HOF)

Biography

In addition to being a ballplayer worthy of his hall of fame credentials, Fred Clarke was also a highly successful rancher. He made a shrewd investment in real estate that paid off when oil was found on his land. His wealth was estimated at $1,000,000 in 1917--the equivalent of $81,100,000 in 2010. After retiring he escaped three close brushes with death.
