Call ‘Em All Shirley

July 30, 2018

Call ’em all Shirley because that’s who they are. They are the only five Shirley surname players, so far, to do time as big league ballplayers.

Here they are ~ from fair-to-middling as MLB talents ~ to worse:

                               1. Bart Shirley (1964, 1966-68)

Bart   Shirley





2. Bob Shirley (1977-1987)

Bob   Shirley





3. Mule Shirley (1924-1925)

Mule Shirley                    






4. Steve Shirley (1982)







5. Tex Shirley (1941-42, 1944-46)






Have a great week ~ and let’s hope the Astros get well and find their mojo working again in Seattle!

Let’s state that even stronger. ~ Surely they will get their act together again – and sometime very soon!
