1922 American Caramel 240 Series: Clyde Milan, Washington Senators, MGR/OF

Clyde "Deerfoot" Milan entered his 16th and final MLB season as a player/manager in 1922.  He had been with the team as a major leaguer since 1907 (20 years old), and unfortunately, would miss out on the team's upcoming World Series run in 1924 and 1925.  Milan was known for being quick on his feet, and often finished near the top of the leaderboard for Singles ('13-'18) and Stolen Bases ('10-'15).  He was also strong defensively, ranking among the best in the league in Putouts, Assists, Fielding Percentage, and Range Factor for outfielders during his career.
