Max Bishop

The leadoff man for Connie Mack‘s AL champions (1929-31), Bishop specialized in drawing walks in front of A’s sluggers Al Simmons, Mickey Cochrane, and Jimmie Foxx. Seven times he topped 100 bases on balls, leading the AL with 128 in 1929. In one doubleheader, he walked eight times. He led AL second basemen in fielding four times. The quiet, gentlemanly Bishop later served 24 years as baseball coach at the U.S. Naval Academy, compiling a 306-143 record.
