Charles F. Wagner, better known as "Heinie," (September 23, 1880 - March 20, 1943) was a shortstop for the New York Giants and the Boston Red Sox. While not an exceptionally good fielder (he averaged 40 errors between 1908 and 1911), he was known to block the basepaths with his "exceptionally big" feet.[1] After retiring, he stayed with the Red Sox as a coach, and in 1930, he was hired to replace two-time World Series winner Bill Carrigan as manager of the Sox, but he fared no better, leading Boston to a league-worst 52-102 (.338) record. He never managed again.

Wagner died in New Rochelle, New York at age 62.

He is mentioned in the book Honus & Me.
