Career highlights and awards

Arthur McArthur Devlin (October 16, 1879 – September 18, 1948) was an American athlete and coach. He is most known for his Major League Baseball career from 1904 to 1913.

College career

Devlin attended Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., where he played baseball and football. As a senior in 1900, he served as the team captain.[1] He was a standout back, and in 1900 was considered competitive for the Walter Camp All-American team if it had not been restricted to Harvard, Yale, and Princeton players.[2]

Coaching career

He served as the head football coach at North Carolina A&M, now North Carolina State, for the 1902 and 1903 seasons. During that time, Devlin's teams compiled a 7–8–2 record for a winning percentage of .471.[3]

In the early 1920s, Devlin served as the head baseball coach at Fordham University.[4][5]

In the late 1920s, Devlin served as a basketball coach at the Naval Academy.[6]

Baseball career

Devlin spent most of his 9-year baseball career with the New York Giants, where he started as their third baseman in 1904. In 1905 Devlin stole 59 bases, sharing the National League lead with Billy Maloney of the Chicago Cubs. Devlin was traded to the Boston Braves in 1911, where he played for two years as a backup infielder until his retirement in 1913.

Art Devlin died in Jersey City, New Jersey a month before his 69th birthday.
