Ray Perry (baseball)
|Minor league manager|
December 23, 1919|
San Francisco, California
|Died: May 3, 1973(aged 53)|
A third baseman and second baseman, Perry played in the minors from 1940–1954, missing 1943–1945 due to service in World War II. He put up good numbers in the minors (despite being listed at 5 feet 7 inches (1.70 m) tall and 175 pounds (79 kg), he hit 348 home runs lifetime and batted .323) but a broken leg and the service in the war hurt his chances to advance.
He was a player-manager as his career wound down and remained a minor league manager through 1961, when he became a scout for the Chicago Cubs. He was with the Cubs from 1961–1967, then was a scout for the New York Yankees from 1968–1969 and Los Angeles Dodgers (1970–1973).
