Lou Finney

When Connie Mack broke up his champion Athletics, he hoped Finney would replace Al Simmons in the outfield and in the hearts of Philadelphia fans. Lou did neither, but he provided 15 steady, dependable ML seasons. With Boston, he spelled strongman Jimmie Foxx at first base and, in 1939, collected a league-leading 13 pinch hits.

After managing in the low minors, he and his brother Hal, a reserve catcher for five seasons with the Pirates, ran a feed store in Alabama.
