From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Frederick Lovett Lake (October 16, 1866 - November 24, 1931) was a Canadian professional baseball player and major league manager with both Boston baseball teams in the early 20th century.

Lake hailed from Cornwallis, Annapolis County, Nova Scotia. His professional debut came with the Boston Braves in 1891, but he was in and out of the major leagues, amassing a total of 125 at-bats in five seasons.

He was hired as manager of the Boston Red Sox in 1908, but he was replaced after the 1909 season despite leading the Sox to a third-place finish. Shortly after, he was hired by the crosstown Boston Doves, but in his only season with the Doves, he finished 53-100, 50½ games behind the pennant-winning Chicago Cubs.

He took up residence in Boston, where he died at age 65.
