Jamestown Community Baseball News - 1941
The 1941 club, led by manager Greg Mulleavy, won the regular season league championship. Attendance exceeded 122,000.
Voted by fans as the Most Popular Falcon was shortstop John O’Neil from Shelbiana, KY. Known as “Tip” or “Scooter,” O’Neil made it to the big leagues with the Philadelphia Philles in 1946. He was involved in baseball for 45 years as a player, manager, general manager and scout.
Besides his year as a Jamestown player in 1941, he also played for the 1954 Falcons and was the general manager of the 1964 Jamestown squad. O’Neil, who married a Jamestown girl and made the city his home, was inducted into the Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame in 2012.
The additional financial assistance of the community is critical to the success of the Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame. We gratefully acknowledge these individuals and organizations for their generous support.
