Today’s Random Player From The Baseball Project That May Or May Not Amount To Anything is George Halas. He was a rookie in 1919 for the New York Yankees, but the young right fielder was injured in spring training and had only two hits in 22 plate appearances. He left to get his hip worked on by a doctor in Youngstown and was able to meet the club when they were in Cleveland. Unfortunately for Halas, though, there was another George in right field — George Herman Ruth. Luckily, Halas found another calling and in 1963 was along with Curly Lambeau inducted into Pro Football Hall of Fame and were the first two coaches to do so.
