CHARLIE DEAL

CHARLIE DEAL:

Born October 30, 1891 in Wilkinsburg – Died September 16, 1979 in Covina, Calif), Charlie was a professional baseball player who played 3rd base in the Major Leagues from 1912 to 1921. He played for the Chicago Cubs, Boston Braves, St. Louis Browns, St. Louis Terriers, and Detroit Tigers.

In 1914, Charlie was a member of the Braves team that went from last place to first place in two months, becoming the first team to win a pennant after being in last place on the Fourth of July. The team then went on to defeat Connie Mack’s heavily favored Philadelphia Athletics in the 1914 World Series. When his request for a salary increase for 1915 was rejected, Charlie jumped to the Federal League, playing for the St. Louis Terriers.

In 1917 Deal led the National League in sacrifice hits with 29. He also proved to be very reliable defensively, leading National League third baseman in fielding three years in a row (1919–1921). Charlie then played for several teams in the Pacific Coast League in the mid-1920s, before ending his career at Chattanooga in the Southern Association in 1927.
