Hughie JENNINGS (HOF)

Biography

John J. McGraw says: “Hugh Jennings and I became pals immediately. We have been ever since. He is now my first lieutenant in the management of the Giants. Jennings was a red headed, freckle-faced kid and fresh, like myself. We took to each other the first time we met, both of us having the same ambitions and aspirations. We were allowed to room together and this close association and chance to exchange ideas was of great benefit to both of us. Hughey and I have been pals all our baseball lives. We became separated when he took the manage ment of the Detroit Tigers, but the moment he retired from that position I offered him his present job so that we could continue to be together.”
