Career highlights and awards

Jesse Clyde Milan (March 25, 1887 – March 3, 1953) was an American baseball player who spent his entire career as an outfielder with the Washington Senators (1907-1922). He was not a powerful batter, but was adept at getting on base and was fleet of foot, receiving the nickname "Deerfoot" for his speed. He set a modern-rules record for stolen bases in a season with 88 in 1912, though his mark was surpassed 3 years later by Ty Cobb. Milan was mostly a center fielder. He played the field right-handed, but batted from the left.

He was born in Linden, Tennessee and died 22 days before his 66th birthday, in Orlando, Florida. During spring training as a coach, he collapsed from heat and had a heart attack.

In a 16-season career, he batted a solid .285 with 17 home runs and 617 runs batted in in 1982 games. He accumulated 495 stolen bases (tied for 37th all-time with Willie Keeler) and 1004 runs scored. Milan had 2100 hits in 7359 career at bats. He ended with a .353 all-time on-base percentage.

As a player-manager (1922 only), with the Senators, he was 69-85, a .448 lifetime winning percentage. After that, he managed minor league teams and spent 17 seasons (1928-29 and 1938 until his death) as a coach with Washington.
