In this photo, date not known, provided by the Library of Congress, New York Yankees shortstop Roger Peckinpaugh poses for a photo in New York. Described as a natural leader, in 1914 he became the team's second captain, a title he held through 1921. He succeeded Frank Chance as the team's manager for the last few weeks of the 1914 season, making him, at 23, the youngest manager ever in the majors, though he did not manage the Yankees the following season. Reliable and proficient both in the field and at the plate, Peckinpaugh was the senior player of the Yankees teams that emerged as contenders in the early 1920s. But after the 1921 season, the captain was traded to the Red Sox and then to the Washington Senators. He was the star of the Senators' 1924 world championship team.
