Biography | show moreshow less
Charlie Grimm (1898-1983) was an ebullient, fun-loving fellow who frolicked through 20 seasons as a player. He was also a tolerant manager who could coax career-best performances from mediocre players and gave free rein to his stars. Grimm was the most skillful first baseman of his era. He won nine fielding titles wearing a small mitt and ranging wide of the bag. He had a 23-game hitting streak in 1923. Grimm managed the Cubs (1932-1938, 1944-1949, 1960), winning four NL pennants. In between, he managed the Braves (1952-1956). In the 1940s he was a play by play announcer for Chicago's WBBM Radio. After his death, his widow was allowed to scatter his ashes over Wrigley Field.
