Career Highlights and Awards
Frank Peter Joseph Crosetti (October 4 1910 - February 11 2002), nicknamed "The Crow," was an American shortstop in Major League Baseball for the New York Yankees from 1932-1948. He batted and threw right-handed. He helped the Yankees to win the World Series in 1932, 1936-39, 1941, 1943 and 1947 and the American League Pennant in 1942.

Crosetti was born in San Francisco, California. In his career he played in 1,683 Games, had 1,006 Runs, 1,541 Hits, 792 Walks, a .245 batting average, 98 home runs, 649 RBIs, 113 stolen bases, .341 On-base percentage, .354 Slugging Percentage, 2225 total bases, 260 doubles, and 65 triples in 6277 at bats and 90 Sacrifice Hits. He led the American League in Strikeouts (105) in 1937. He led the American League in Games (157), Strikeouts (97) and Stolen Bases in (27) in 1938, and led the league in hit by pitches 8 times in his career. He also led the American League in At Bats (656) in 1939. He ended his career with an amazing total of 114 hit by pitches (tied for 39th all-time, with Bill Freehan). It still stands as the New York Yankees career record. He was also a two-time All-Star (1936, 1939). He later became a coach with the Yankees for 20 years. He died at age 91 in Stockton, California.

Crosetti is the answer to a popular baseball trivia question: "Who has collected the most World Series checks in the history of baseball?" As a player and third base coach for the Yankees, Crosetti was part of 17 World Championship teams.

Several unflattering anecdotes about Crosetti (as Bouton's pitching coach during his stint with the Yankees) appear in Jim Bouton's iconoclastic baseball book about his year with the erstwhile Seattle Pilots, "Ball Four".

Crow was renown for his ability to pull off the hidden ball trick.
