Mr. Stanley GlenSTANLEY ‘DOC’ GLENN
Born: Sept 16, 1926
Stanley was a strong armed catcher for the Philadelphia Stars from 1944 to 1950. He then played three years in the minors and two in the Canadian League.
Stanley was signed by hall-of-famer Oscar Charleston right out of John Bartram High School in Philadelphia.
Stanley remembers every day and every player who he played with during his career. “I suppose one thing I remember so vividly was catching Satchel Paige (1946 and 1950),” Glenn says. “As hard as he threw, the ball was like a feather. It was so easy to catch him, mainly because he was always around the plate.”
Stanley retired in Philadelphia and is currently active as President on the NLBPA Board of Directors.
