George Kelly 125 -- September 10, 2020


New York Tribune, 02-May-1920

George Kelly, called High Pockets because of his exceptional height, played first base for the New Giants when they appeared in the World Series four years in a row and won twice. Kelly was born in San Francisco 125 years ago today, on 10-September-2020. The Veterans' Committee voted him into the Hall of Fame in 1973, and it was a controversial choice because two of his teammates were on the committee. I remember a local television show that interviewed several local Hall of Famers. Kelly was on it.
