Biographical Information[edit]

Ernie Maun pitched for the 1924 New York Giants (22 games in relief) and for the 1926 Philadelphia Phillies (14 games, of which 5 were starts). While he was hit pretty hard, nevertheless he got three victories out it and the 1924 Giants went on to win the pennant. Between the two teams, Ernie also did well as a hitter, going 5-for-15 for a .333 batting average.

Maun also spent nine seasons in the minors, primarily with two teams. His first four pro years were with the Wichita Izzies (also known as the Jobbers and Witches while he was there), and his best year was in 1923 when he was 26-11. In 1925 he played for the Indianapolis Indians, putting up a record of 19-14, and from 1926-28, when he wasn't in the big leagues, he was with the Toledo Mud Hens. One of his managers there was Casey Stengel, long before Stengel managed the New York Yankees or the New York Mets. Ernie finished out his minor league career with the Denver Bears in 1929.
