Major League Baseball Player. He was the older brother of Washington Senator pitcher Syd Cohen. He spent three seasons as a middle infielder for the New York Giants. He played collegiate baseball at the University of Alabama. Following college he played minor league baseball for the Minneapolis Millers and managed in the Brooklyn Dodgers and Boston Braves farm systems. He made his major league debut on June 6, 1926 at the age of 21. He appeared in 262 games during his three seasons, finishing with 14 home runs, 249 hits and a lifetime .281 batting average. Following his playing career he coached one game as an interim manager for the Philadelphia Phillies, following the unexpected resignation of manager Eddie Sawyer after a nine to four loss to the Cincinnati Reds on opening day. Cohen remained on as a coach with the Phillies, after being replaced by Gene Mauch. Mauch went on to have a successful 26 year coaching career as the manager of the Philadelphia Phillies, Montreal Expos, Minnesota Twins and California Angels. (bio by: Nils M. Solsvik Jr.)
