Hal Chase was born February 13, 1883  in Los Gatos, California  In his youth he played with local teams. At age 19, Chase  joined the Victoria, B.C., team and later the Los Angeles Angels of the 1904 Pacific Coast League. from there he was drafted by the New York Americans, playing in his first game with them April 14, 1905.

  He started out as a pitcher, but soon switched to first base at which  he excelled and became the premier first baseman in the major leagues.  Fans could not believe how far off the bag he would place himself defensively some times 15 feet,   Chase proved himself on the field year after year.  Hal Chase stepped into  the batters box and batted 

more than 7,400 times in major league baseball games.

“Prince Hal” Chase

“Prince Hal” Chase

New York Highlanders – 1911 American League

Hal Chase for 14 years from 1905 until 1919, played in the big-leagues, at various times a member of the New York Giants, ( Available Now!  https://www.amazon.com/Noel-Hynd See next frame below - Author - NOEL HYND - NEW REVISED EDITION - "THE GIANTS OF THE POLO GROUNDS" )  Hal Chase was the first super star for the New York Highlanders /Yankees. Chase also played for the  Chicago White Sox,  Cincinnati Reds and the 1919 New York Giants.  On August 9, 1918 Reds’ manager, Christy Mathewson, suspended his player Hal Chase for the accusations of “Indifferent Playing” (Game Fixing) This was the first time any baseball official had seriously punished Chase for his involvement.  Soon, Hal  Chase was hired by New York Giants manager, John McGraw ( A TRIO of TEAMMATES - CHASE - McGRAW - MATHEWSON)

  After the news broke out of the 1919 fix of the World’s Series, Chase was thought as being a part of the conspiracy. – Hal Chase himself denied till his death “Did Not participate in.” Chase was not a “Black Sox” player, however, the newspapers kept the heated story alive for years, and a cloud of suspicion followed any and all ball players who were thought of being less than an honorable ball player on or off the diamond. 

  In 1921 the first Commissioner of Baseball, Kenesaw Mountain Landis ruled that: “Any ball player who conspires with gamblers to fix ball games will be banned from professional baseball for life.” In 1925 when Chase was offered the opportunity to manage the town of Douglas, Arizona local baseball team he accepted. The 1925 FRONTIER LEAGUE  “Outlaw” gave Hal Chase and
