Looking Back at Litwhiler


In a recent article, CT SABR Member George Pawlush looks back at Danny Litwhiler, whose centennial occurred in Summer 2016.  Dubbed the Edison of Baseball by author Dan Gutman, Danny’s inventions led to 100 innovations.   He also played for 11 MLB seasons while hitting .282 with 107 HR, making one AS team and earning a World Series ring.  A longtime collegiate coach in his post-player years, Litwhiler coached Kirk Gibson and Steve Garvey at Michigan State.

George’s article on the amazing Litwhiler appears in SABR Collegiate Research Committee Newsletter, which you can open and read at the below link:
