Wikipedia article of the day for March 29, 2018

The Wikipedia article of the day for March 29, 2018 is Casey Stengel.
Casey Stengel (1890–1975) was an American Major League Baseball (MLB) right fielder, and a manager for the New York Yankees championship teams of the 1950s and for the New York Mets in the early 1960s. He was an outfielder for the 1912 Brooklyn Dodgers, and played on their 1916 National League championship team. After serving in the navy during World War I, he played for the Philadelphia Phillies, the New York Giants and the Boston Braves. In 1925 he began a career as a manager, with mostly poor finishes for the next twenty years, especially with the Dodgers (1934–1936) and Braves (1938–1943). In 1948 he was hired as Yankee manager. In his twelve seasons, his teams garnered ten pennants, winning seven World Series, including a record-setting streak of five in a row (1949–1953). He was known for his humorous and sometimes disjointed banter. His showmanship helped the Mets, an expansion team, when they hired him in late 1961, but the team finished last for four years in a row, and he retired in 1965. Remembered as one of the great characters in baseball history, Stengel was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1966.
