William James Duggleby (March 16, 1874 – August 30, 1944), nicknamed "Frosty Bill", was a pitcher for the Philadelphia Phillies. He played from 1898 to 1907. He also played two games for the Philadelphia Athletics in 1902 and nine games for the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1907. Duggleby is the first of four major league players to hit a grand slam in his first major league at-bat; Jeremy Hermida, Kevin Kouzmanoff and Daniel Nava are the other three. As of 2011, he still holds the Phillies team record for hit batsmen for a career (82).

Duggleby was one of the "jumpers" who left the Phillies in 1902 for other teams, including (in Duggleby's case) Connie Mack's new American League team, the Athletics. The Phillies filed suit to prevent the "jumpers" — in particular, Nap Lajoie, Bill Bernhard, and Chick Fraser — from playing for any other team, a plea which was rejected by a lower court before being upheld by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. Duggleby was the first of the "jumpers" to return to the Phillies, on May 8, 1902, after playing only two games with the A's.

He was the manager of the Minor League Baseball team, the Albany Babies, in 1912.

List of Nashville Vols managers

The Nashville Vols minor league baseball team employed 25 managers during its 62 seasons of play from its creation in Nashville, Tennessee, in 1901 through its final season of 1963. These managers led their team in 9,019 regular season games and compiled a win–loss record of 4,571–4,448 (.507). They had a post-season record of 110–77–1 (.588) in 188 games. Playing in an era when it was common to have player-managers, 16 men managed the team at the same time as they were playing on the field. Originally known as the Nashville Baseball Club, the team did not receive their official moniker, the Nashville Volunteers, until 1908. However, the team was, and is, commonly referred to as the Vols.

Seven managers guided the team to win the Southern Association pennant or win the league's post-season championship. Newt Fisher (1901 and 1902), Bill Bernhard (1908), Roy Ellam (1916), and Larry Gilbert (1940, 1943, 1948, and 1949) managed the Vols to win the pennant. Larry Gilbert (1939, 1940, 1942, 1943, and 1944), Rollie Hemsley (1949), Don Osborn (1950), and Hugh Poland (1953) led the team to win post-season Southern Association championship tournaments. Larry Gilbert (1940, 1941, and 1942) and Rollie Hemsley (1949) managed the Nashville team to win the Dixie Series, a best-of-seven playoff series between the Southern Association and Texas League.Larry Gilbert won 818 games from 1939 to 1948, placing him first on the all-time wins list for Vols managers. Having managed the team for 1,478 games, 10 full seasons, he is also the longest-tenured manager in team history. The manager with the highest winning percentage over a full season or more is Rollie Hemsley, whose 1949 team had a .625 winning percentage. Conversely, the lowest winning percentage over a season or more is .338 by manager Mickey Finn from 1905 to 1906.
