Frank Lane

Lane played a little minor league ball and was a minor league executive and president of the American Association, but gained fame as general manager of the White Sox, Cardinals, and Indians. He traded stars like Red SchoendienstRocky Colavito, and Roger Maris with abandon. Cardinal owner Gussie Busch blocked Lane’s attempted trade of Stan Musial. Lane became business manager of the Athletics in 1961 and later scouted for the Orioles and Brewers.
