George McBride was considered the American League's premier fielding shortstop of his day. While with the Washington Senators, McBride led the league in fielding four straight seasons (1912-15).
McBride also led the league in double plays six times and in putouts three times. McBride averaged only .218 at the plate in his career, but earned the nickname "Pinch" for his ability to come through in a pinch.
After retiring as a player, McBride managed the Senators in 1921 until he was struck in the face by a ball, paralyzing one side of his face. He later coached for Ty Cobb in Detroit.
