Glenn, Stanley - Doc


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.
