"Handsome and popular, Fred was only a utility infielder, but he had an excellent baseball head."

-Chick Gandil   
White Sox teammate   


tility infielder Fred McMullin was a reliable resource for the White Sox from 1916-1920. During these 5 seasons he played in 303 games, mostly at second and third base and on occasion shortstop.

Fred played in a total of 60 games during the 1919 season. In 170 at bats, he collected 50 hits, 19 RBI's and batted a respectable .294. Fred's salary for the 1919 season was $2,750.

Fred made two appearances in the 1919 World Series,

 

both being as a pinch-hitter. In Game 1, with the White Sox down 8-1 in the 8th inning, Fred batted for White Sox pitcher Roy Wilkinson and singled to centerfield.

In Game 2 Fred made his second pinch-hit appearance and batted for Lefty Williams in the 9th inning. With the White Sox down 4-2 and 2 out, Fred grounded out to Reds second baseman Morrie Rath to end the game.

For his part in the fix, Fred earned $5,000 and ultimately... expulsion from professional baseball.
