Max Rosenfeld

Max Rosenfeld (December 23, 1902 in New York City – March 10, 1969 in Miami, Florida), was a professional baseball player who played outfield from 1931 to 1933 with the Brooklyn Robins/Dodgers.

Rosenfeld has a great background as both a baseball player and manager. He started out in both football and baseball as a student at the University of Alabama. After college, he played for the St. Louis Browns of the American League as an outfielder. The Browns sent him to Birmingham, his home town team for two years. He was later sold by the Browns to the Brooklyn Dodgers and he was farmed out to the Toledo American Association for two years.

Next he went to play for the Hartford Conn. Senators in the Eastern League. Normally an outfielder, 28-year-old Max Rosenfeld was Hartford's regular second baseman in 1931, batting a .312 average with 3 home runs and 68 RBI's. And then Max was finally sent to the Major's, back to the Dodgers in Brooklyn for two years. He hit a .298 average with appearances in 42 games. Then Brooklyn farmed him out to Jersey City in the International League and when Jersey City's franchise was transferred to Syracuse he went there, and later to Newark for two years with the International League. He also played for Dallas, Tex., in the Texas League and then became manager of the Jackson, Miss., team in the Southeastern 'B' League. Later he became manager of the old Florida East Coast League for three years. He piloted the Miami Beach team in that league until it expired in 1942.

In January 1946 Rosenfeld became the manager of the new Miami Beach Flamingos franchise in the Florida International League. That team was aligned with the Boston Braves of the National League for provision of talent. By that time, Rosenfeld had already lived in Miami Beach for 21 years, where he eventually finished out his career in sports, and later retired.

1902 in baseball

The following are the baseball events of the year 1902 throughout the world.

1920 Alabama Crimson Tide football team

The 1920 Alabama Crimson Tide football team (variously "Alabama", "UA" or "Bama") represented the University of Alabama in the 1920 Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association football season. It was the Crimson Tide's 27th overall and 24th season as a member of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association (SIAA). The team was led by head coach Xen C. Scott, in his second year, and played their home games at University/Denny Field in Tuscaloosa and at Rickwood Field in Birmingham, Alabama. They finished the season with a record of ten wins and one loss (10–1 overall, 6–1 in the SIAA). This marked the first ten win season in the history of Alabama football. Starting with Scott, every Alabama coach has won ten games in a season at least once, with the exception of Jennings B. Whitworth.

Alabama opened the season with six consecutive shutout victories over the Southern Military Academy, Marion Military Institute, Birmingham–Southern, Mississippi College, Howard, and Sewanee. In their seventh game against Vanderbilt Alabama allowed its first touchdown of the season, but won 14–7 after the Commodores threw an interception on a fourth and goal from the three-yard line in the fourth quarter.

After their shutout victory over LSU on what was the first homecoming game played at Alabama, the Crimson Tide lost their only game of the season at Atlanta against Georgia. The Bulldogs did not score on offense but won 21–14 after touchdowns were scored on a fumble return, a blocked punt return and a blocked field goal return. The loss snapped Alabama's then school-record 11-game winning streak. Alabama won their final two games against Mississippi A&M and in Cleveland at Case and finished the season 10–1.

1921 Alabama Crimson Tide football team

The 1921 Alabama Crimson Tide football team (variously "Alabama", "UA" or "Bama") represented the University of Alabama in the 1921 college football season. It was the Crimson Tide's 28th overall and 25th season as a member of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association (SIAA). The team was led by head coach Xen C. Scott, in his third year, and played their home games at Denny Field in Tuscaloosa and at Rickwood Field in Birmingham, Alabama. They finished the season with a record of five wins, four losses and two ties (5–4–2 overall, 2–4–2 in the SIAA).

In the opener, Alabama spotted Howard a 14–0 first-quarter lead before they rallied and won, 34–14. After a victory over Spring Hill in their second game, the Crimson Tide outscored Marion Military Institute and Bryson College by a combined 150–0 over their next two games en route to a 4–0 start to open the season. The fast start did not translate to winning for the remainder of the season as they lost four of their next five games.

In their first Rickwood Field game of the season, the Crimson Tide was shut out by Sewanee and followed the loss with a tie against LSU in their first road game of the season at New Orleans. Alabama returned to Rickwood in their next game, where they were shut out by Vanderbilt, followed by losses to Florida on homecoming in Tuscaloosa and then to Georgia at Atlanta. After they tied Mississippi A&M in their final home game of the year, Alabama upset Tulane at New Orleans and prevented their first losing season since 1903.

1922 Alabama Crimson Tide football team

The 1922 Alabama Crimson Tide football team (variously "Alabama", "UA" or "Bama") represented the University of Alabama in the 1922 college football season. It was the Crimson Tide's 29th overall and 1st season as a member of the Southern Conference (SoCon). The team was led by head coach Xen C. Scott, in his fourth year, and played their home games at Denny Field in Tuscaloosa, Rickwood Field in Birmingham and the Cramton Bowl in Montgomery, Alabama. They finished the season with a record of six wins, three losses and one tie (6–3–1 overall, 3–2–1 in the SoCon).

Alabama opened the season with a 110–0 victory over the Marion Military Institute which still stands as the school record for largest margin of victory and as the Crimson Tide's only 100 point game. After a victory over Oglethorpe, Alabama went winless over their next three games with losses at both Georgia Tech and Texas and a tie against Sewanee at Rickwood Field. With a record of 2–2–1, Alabama entered an intersectional contest against undefeated Penn as a major underdog. Alabama managed to upset the Quakers 9–7 in a game The Plain Dealer called "intersectional history". The Crimson Tide then completed their season with a homecoming win over LSU, a loss at Kentucky, a win over Georgia in Alabama's first game at the Cramton Bowl and a win over Mississippi A&M to close the season.
