From Find A Grave: John Joseph McGraw-Hall of Fame Major League Baseball Player and Manager. Nicknamed "Little Napoleon" and "Muggsy", he was a professional baseball player and manager. He made his major league debut as a third baseman with the American Association Baltimore Orioles in 1891. After the Orioles moved to the National League, he remained with the team until 1899.

As manager of the Giants, he won pennants in 1911 to 1913, in 1917 and 1921 to 1924. His total of 2,763 victories as a manager ranks second overall behind Connie Mack and he holds the National League record with 2,669 wins.
