New Arrival: Danny Litwhiler, of, Phillies/Reds/Cardinals/Braves

Danny Litwhiler

Very good player for a couple season, peaking with his 1941 and 1942 seasons.  He was selected to the 1942 All-Star team.  Only had two seasons as a regular, but as a 4th outfield showed more than enough hitting ability and pop to stick around in the league for 11 seasons.  He retired with a career OPS+ of 119, and would appear in two World Series,  winning it with St. Louis in 1944.

After his playing career ended he would lead Florida State to three College World Series as head coach, and then while at Michigan State gain the record for most coaching wins.
