History / Biographical
Jack Graney was born in St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada, and played baseball for the Cleveland American League team (now known as the Indians) from 1910 to 1922. As leadoff batter, Jack's life was full of firsts, particularly first hit and first run scored in a game or a season.
He was also the first, and only major league player to own a dog that was the team's official mascot. That dog was Larry, a bull terrier.
All major leaguers dream of winning their league's pennant, and beyond that, the World Series. The story of Jack Graney and Larry is the story of a man, a dog, a team, and the pursuit of the pennant: a pursuit filled with both joy and sorrow.
