Solons Third Baseman - 1931
Native Sacramentan Stanley Camfield Hack started his baseball career playing third base for the Solons in 1931. He led the team with a .352 batting average and 129 runs scored. The next year, he found himself in the major leagues, playing third for the Chicago Cubs. After 16 years and four World Championships with the Cubs, he retired as a player in 1947, and managed several minor league teams, including three years in the PCL as manager for the Los Angeles Angels in 1951, 1952, and 1953. He then went back to the majors to manage the Cubs from 1954 to 1956.
