Old Baseball Players That Never Existed II: “Kid” McGee [day 2]

“Kid” McGee, hero newsie.  When called to service, he  gallantly stepped in from the ha’penny standing-room only/steerage area along the third base line to fill in for his World War I-, influenza-, and typhoid-ravaged team.


Kid, that walk on four straight balls miles outside your strike zone simply could not have happened without you.

(Inspired by the fact that Babe Ruth apparently called everyone “Kid” because he was incapable of remembering names)
