Sisler’s career spanned 15 seasons, earning praise from Ty Cobb, who once referred to Sisler as “the nearest thing to a perfect ballplayer.” He continued to make his mark after retiring when he became a scout for Branch Rickey, JD1911, his former U-M coach. Sisler scouted Jackie Robinson, thus helping break the color barrier in baseball. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1939.
