Bill Veeck
(b. February 9, 1914 - d. January 2, 1986)
One of baseball's most colorful showmen, Bill Veeck integrated the AL when he signed Larry Doby while the Indians' owner. He owned three AL teams - Cleveland, St. Louis, and Chicago. His 1948 Tribe club was the first to top two million in attendance. While the owner of the Browns, he sent midget Eddie Gaedel up to bat, and as the chief of the White Sox, introduced baseball's first exploding scoreboard.
