Encyclopedia > Jack Hendricks

John Charles Hendricks (April 9, 1875 - May 13, 1943) was an outfielder with the New York Giants, the Chicago Orphans, and the Washington Senators, although he never played as a regular, with the majority of his playing time coming in the 1903 season in which he played 32 games. After retiring as a player, he started managing in the minor leagues, eventually getting his major league managerial debut when Miller Huggins was fired by the St. Louis Cardinals after the 1917 season. After a 51-78 record and a last-place finish, Hendricks quit. In the 1924 season, the Reds had reported to spring training in Orlando, FL when their manager, Pat Moran died of Bright's disease. The Reds contacted Hendricks, who resigned his post as athletic director of the Knights of Columbus to manage the Reds. His best finish as manager was second place in the 1926 season, behind his former team, the Cardinals. He was fired in 1929 after a seventh place finish.
