Mule Haas

Haas had a great outfield tutor in Tris Speaker with the Athletics in 1928. He adopted Speaker’s style of playing shallow, loping back to catch fly balls over his shoulder or dashing in for shoetop grabs. He learned bench jockeying from another master, Eddie Rommel. Haas, Al Simmons, and Jimmy Dykes were sold to the White Sox for $100,000 in 1932.
