Professional Baseball Player. Real name Raymond James Mlckovsky. He played Major League Baseball for nine seasons with the Cleveland Indians, Chicago Cubs, and very briefly with the New York Yankees. After attending Case Western Reserve University, where he was a Division III football star, he made his big league debut with Cleveland in 1938. He played his entire career at second base and was part of the revered double play combination with shortstop teammate, Lou Boudreau. Mack was better known for his fielding skills than as a hitter, with a .966 career fielding percentage. He participated in 597 double plays and was an American League All-Star in 1940, one of six Indians to make the squad that season. 1940 was his finest season and included many memorable moments, most notably for making a diving stop for the final out to save Bob Feller's opening day no-hitter. During the season he hit .283 in 146 games, collected 150 hits, clubbed 12 homeruns, and hit an inside-the-park grand slam, a baseball rarity. The following year, he fielded the final out to end Joe DiMaggio's record 56 game hitting streak. He played in 791 games, pounded out 629 hits, blasted 34 homeruns, and drove in 278 runs. He also scored 273 runs and stole 35 bases, while only posting a .232 lifetime batting average. His son, Tom Mack, was a Pro-Bowl Hall of Fame football player for the Los Angeles Rams.  (bio by: K Guy)
