Biographical Information[edit]

"The St. Louis Browns won their first game in Chicago since October 3, 1914. They defeated the local Americans in a ragged, wild and erratic game. It was the first appearance of Fielder Jones as head of an American League club since 1908. The locals started two belated rallies, but sensational fielding by Lavan saved the game for the visitors." - Sporting Life's account of the one major league game in which Ray Shook appeared, on April 16, 1916.

Ray Shook was in one major league game, coming in as a pinch-runner on April 16, 1916 for the Chicago White Sox against the St. Louis Browns. He got no chance to bat or field in the majors. Ray was not a raw kid out of high school, though - he had been playing minor league ball since 1911 as a catcher, albeit in the low minors.
