Max George Carey (January 11, 1890 – May 30, 1976) was an American center fielder in Major League Baseball who starred for the Pittsburgh Pirates. He was born in Terre Haute, Indiana. During his 20-year career, he led the league in stolen bases ten times and finished with 738 swipes, a National League record until 1974 and the 9th-highest total in major league history through 2005.
He was originally born Maximillian George Carnarius in Terre Haute, Indiana. He first adopted the name Max Carey when he played his first professional baseball game in order to retain his amateur status at Concordia College; the name would stick with him for his entire career.
Carey played for the Pirates from his arrival in the league in 1910 until 1926, winning a World Series championship in 1925. He was known as a skilled fielder and excellent base stealer. He regularly stole 40 or more bases and maintained a favourable steal percentage; in 1922 he stole 51 bases and was only caught twice. He also stole home 33 times in his career, second best to Ty Cobb's 50 on the all time list.
He'll sell the few tickets that Tampa do get. I'm a Barry man and i think he should go to Japan if he wants to keep playing. Leave all this media induce read this bullcrap story because we got nothing else to write about behind him.
