Eddie Collins
A young shortstop called “Sullivan” broke into the game of baseball on September 17, 1906. During his first game with the Philadelphia Athletics, he flawlessly fielded six hits and knocked a single off the White Sox pitcher. It was soon discovered that Sullivan was not this player’s real name, and that he was better at second base.
 
The 1906 season was the first of Eddie Collins’ (1887-1951) 25-year major league career, one of the longest in baseball history. His aggressive style earned him the nickname “Cocky.” Collins’ career is full of highlights. In 1910, he had a team-high .422 average and contributed to their World Series win. In 1912, he stole six bases in a game twice. Over his career, Collins stole the fourth highest number of bases and played 2,650 games at second base, the most ever at that position.
 
After the 1914 season, Collins was sold to the Chicago White Sox, where he played for 12 years. When he joined Chicago, Collins’ salary was $15,000, twice as much as any of his teammates. Collins played in two World Series with the Sox. In the 1919 series, eight of his teammates were involved in the infamous White Sox scandal. After his retirement, Collins remained active in baseball as a manager and executive. He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1939.
