George Cunningham

As a young pitcher prone to shoulder trouble, Cunningham complained so much about the slump-ridden, injury-depleted Tiger outfield of 1918 that manager Hughie Jennings gave him the right-field job for three weeks. He did no better than the regulars. After his arm problems ended his pitching career in 1920, Cunningham worked on his hitting in the minors and returned to the Tigers as an outfielder for one game in 1921.
