Biographical Information[edit]

Little Nemo in 1914. He didn't like the nickname.

"Little Nemo" Leibold played thirteen years in the majors. Although part of the 1917 White Sox and 1919 White Sox teams that went to the World Series, he was not one of the Black Sox. He was also on the 1924 Senators and 1925 Senators teams that went to the Series.

He managed in the minors from 1928-48. In 1946 he was suspended for five days for striking an umpire by American Association commissioner Roy Hamey, causing the two umpires involved to resign. William Bramham made the suspension effective until the end of the year. Upon appeal it was shortened to 45 days (July 17-August 31).
