Little Nel
The Nellie Fox Story
by David Gough and Jim Bard Reviewed by Max Silberman
David Gough and Jim Bard have produced a book about Nellie Fox that goes well beyond his baseball career and introduces the reader to a very fine human being who happened to play baseball. The Nellie Fox journey began in St. Thomas, Pa. on Christmas Day, 1927 and his path to Cooperstown, NY, where he was a 1997 inductee took him through Shibe Park and the Athletics farm system before his glory days with the Chicago White Sox and final years with the Houston Astros, (nee Colt .45s) Philadelphia Athletics Society members (including Nellie Fox's devoted fan and collector, Howard Singer) will remember the trade that sent the future Hall of Famer to the White Sox in October 1949 for catcher Joe Tipton. Tipton played for four American League teams as a back-up catcher, while Fox went on to greatness. A's fans also bemoan the swap of George Kell to the Detroit Tigers earlier in 1946. Barney McCoskey, obtained for Kell gave the A's several very productive years but did not achieve Kell's Hall of Fame status. Although Nellie Fox played only three seasons for the A's (1947-49) readers will recognize many familiar names in the stories about his minor league days in Lancaster, PA and Lincoln, NE, with many future Philadelphia A's.

Nellie Fox
The One That Got Away
by Dale Smith
During his 50-year reign as manager of the Philadelphia Athletics, Connie Mack was known for having an uncanny ability to spot potential. Whether on a college diamond, an independent minor league team or through the A's own farm system, Connie just seemed to know which players were going to have Hall of Fame or near Hall of Fame careers. Connie's strategy was to develop and keep the great ones until he could no longer afford them, typically through at least the first half of their career. In 1949, however, at the end of his career, Connie's judgement failed him. As he watched his little second baseman, Nellie Fox, during the 1949 season, he saw nothing special. But very special he turned out to be. Jacob Nelson Fox was born on Christmas Day, 1927 in St. Thomas, Pennsylvania. His father, Jake Fox, was a second baseman and manager of a semipro team. Nellie learned the game almost as soon as he could walk. At 17 years of age in 1945, Nellie was playing pro ball with Lancaster of the Inter-State League. In the military service in 1946, Nellie played again for Lancaster in 1947 and the 19-year-old was up to the Athletics for a cup of coffee at the end of the season. It was at Lincoln in the Western League in 1948 that Nellie gave notice that he deserved to be in the major leagues. He hit .311 while collecting 179 hits and scoring 97 runs. His Lincoln teammate, Bobby Shantz, had a pretty good year himself, winning 18 games while losing only 7 with 212 strikeouts in 214 innings. Both players would make the 1949 Philadelphia Athletics roster.

About the Book
At forty, Hank has decided he's through with baseball-a routine pop-up fell on his head and he got the message. Trouble is, baseball is the one thing that's given any meaning to his life. This is the painfully funny story of a man who decides to get a life, but isn't sure how. It's about fathers and sons, heroes and whiners, the wheel of fortune (and Vanna White), baseball and the decline of Western civilization-and why Nellie Fox always spat in his glove.
"A fine read for ball fans everywhere."––Roger Kahn ". . . like the hapless Chicago Cubs, Manderino's characters possess miles and miles of heart."–– Publishers Weekly ". . . will have aging baseball fans believing that sandlot fellowship and a woman's tender love really can save men from cynicism, bad marriages, and dead-end dreams."–– Kirkus L>

Area Overview
Nellie Fox
But when it came to playing with intensity and getting the most of what God had endowed him with, Nellie Fox was second to no one. Fox is the most famous Franklin Countian ever to wear the uniform of a major league baseball team. Nothing Fox got ever came easily. He had to work hard for everything he achieved during his major league career, most of which he spent as a magician at second base for the Chicago White Sox. "Self-made, all the way" was how Herb Score, former Cleveland Indians pitcher and broadcaster, described Fox. Fox wound up as a .288 hitter in 2,367 games and 9,232 at-bats covering all or part of every season between 1947 and 1965. He ranked second all-time among major leaguers in double plays at second base, third in fewest strikeouts per at-bat, putouts at second base and games at second base, and sixth in assists at second base. The great New York Yankee Whitey Ford, himself a Hall of Famer, once said Fox was nearly impossible to strike out.

BALTIMORE, Dec. 1 (AP) Nellie Fox , former second baseman for the Chicago White Sox, who was the American League's most valuable player in 1959, died today at University Hospital. He was 47 years old and lived in St. Thomas, Pa. Mr. Fox entered the hospital in mid-October suffering from widespread skin cancer. Epitome of Hustle
By Deane McGowen He was christened Jacob Nelson Fox, but to his major-league teammates and to thousands of baseball fans he was Nellie, a strange nickname for one of baseball's tough guys. Like Pete Rose of the Cincinnati Reds, Nellie Fox was the epitome of "hustle." Hustle was the chief reason Nellie Fox became a successful ballplayer. He was irreverent, too. The late Casey Stengel, then managing the New York Yankees, said of Fox: "That little feller, he ain't so big, but he's all fire. He's caused me more grief than any other player on the White Sox." Stengel related one story as a case in point. In a game between the Yankees and Chicago, a close play at second base brought Stengel running from the dugout. As Stengel arrived to give the umpire a piece of his mind, Fox snapped, "What're you doing out here? Gonna tell us a couple of your funny jokes?" The ebullient Stengel was silenced. Some Distinguishing Things Fox's trademarks in baseball were a giant-sized chew of tobacco jutting from his jaw, and his bottle-sized bat and his ability to get a piece of the ball at the plate.

Baseball Fever American League Chicago White Sox PDA View Full Version : White Sox all-time second baseman Hammerin Hank 06-14-2003, 09:53 PM Who should be the White Sox all-time second baseman?
Eddie Collins (1915-26)
Ray Durham (1995-2002)
Jackie Hayes (1932-40)
Nellie Fox (1950-63) Hammerin Hank 06-15-2003, 12:30 AM I had a hard time choosing between Nellie and Eddie, but in the end I went with Eddie who had a monster of a career. The Commissioner 06-15-2003, 10:37 AM Fox was great, but it's hard to overlook the numbers Collins up as a member of the Sox. 06-16-2003, 06:46 PM Anyone who plays a 154 game season and whiffs only 9 times,and wins MVP gets my vote.That would be Nellie Fox. Hammerin Hank 06-18-2003, 09:59 PM Nine times?! I wouldn't believe it if I didn't see it. Oh wait, I didn't see it. Oh well, I still believe it. The Commissioner 06-18-2003, 10:21 PM Actually he struck out 13 times in 1959. His nine whiff season was in 1949 when he only appeared in 88 games. Still, Fox was one of the best ever at making contact. In 19 seasons he recorded a total of only 216 strikeouts. That why it made it a very hard decision for me to pick Collins over him. Still Collins was no slouch in that department either. In 1923, in 505 at bats, he only struck out 8 times himself. AutoMick 12-02-2003, 01:43 AM
