Patrick Henry "Patsy" Dougherty
Birth: Oct. 27, 1876
Allegany County
New York, USA
Death: Apr. 30, 1940
Allegany County
New York, USA

Major League Baseball Player. Played Major League baseball as an Outfielder for 10 seasons (1902 to 1911) with the Boston Pilgrims (Red Sox), New York Highlanders (Yankees), and Chicago White Sox. A pitcher in the Minor Leagues, he was switched to the outfield, and made a stellar Big League debut in 1902, hitting .342 in his rookie campaign with the Red Sox. The next year his .331 Batting Average contributed to the Red Sox capturing the American League pennant, which sent them to the very first World Series. He also led the AL in Hits (195) and Runs (107) in 1903. In the Inaugural Fall Classic, which pitted Boston against the Pittsburgh Pirates, he hit only .235, but single-handedly won Game 2 for the Sox when he hit 2 Home Runs, the first World Series multi-homer game (and the only one until the Red Sox’s Harry Hooper did it in 1915 against the Philadelphia Phillies). His Boston team, which also included Hall of Famers Cy Young and Jimmy Collins, won the first Series, 5 Games to 3. Despite his stellar play, the Sox traded him to the Yankees in 1904 after 49 games. He finished the year with New York, and again led the AL in Runs (113). From then on his hitting declined, and never reached the highs of his first two seasons. 12 Games into the 1906 season the Yankees sent him to the White Sox, whom he helped go the World Series that year (and made him the first player to appear in two Series for two different teams). He played in all 6 games, which saw the White Sox defeat the crosstown rival Cubs 4 Games to 2 (to date the only all-Chicago post season series). He would play 5 more seasons as the White Sox’s regular Left Fielder before retiring in 1911 (in 1910 he led the AL in Stolen Bases with 47). His career totals were 1,233 Games Played, 1,294 Hits, 678 Runs, 17 Home Runs, 261 Stolen Bases and a good .284 career Batting Average. (bio by: Russ)
