Career highlights and awards

  • 1916 National League Pennant

Harry Harlan "Mike" Mowrey (April 20, 1884 in Browns Mill, Pennsylvania – March 20, 1947 in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania), is a former professional baseball player who played third base in the Major Leagues from 1905 to 1917. He would play for the Cincinnati Reds, St. Louis Cardinals, Brooklyn Robins, and Pittsburgh Pirates.

Mowrey was best known for his unorthodox fielding style—instead of catching a hard smash in his glove, he would knock the ball to the ground and then pick it up to throw out the runner. Defending against the bunt was a corner infielder's primary responsibility during the Deadball Era, and in 1910 Alfred H. Spink called Mowrey "the best fielder of bunts in either league." [1]
