Charles Timothy O'Leary
Birth: Oct. 15, 1882
Death: Jan. 16, 1941

Major League Baseball Player. He had had two careers in Major League baseball, one as a player and one as a coach. He played in the minors for 3 seasons before joining the Detroit Tigers in 1904, eventually becoming the regular shortstop for four seasons. From 1908 on, he was the Tigers chief utility man, showing versatility at short, 3rd and 2nd base. He played in three straight World Series from 1907 to 1909. Considered to be a heady fielder, he was a below average hitter, batting only .226 lifetime. As a coach with Miller Huggins staff in New York, he was credited with the development of infielders Mark Koenig and Tony Lazzeri, both members of the famed 1927 Yankees Murderers Row team. O'Leary coached for the the Yanks until 1930, after which he was let go by incoming manager Joe McCarthy. He found work as a coach for the Browns and later his hometown Cubs. He retired from the game to work for the Chicago Sanitary District. He died at the age of 58 in 1941. (bio by: Frank Russo)
