Playing careerEdit

Mulleavy threw and batted right-handed, stood 5 feet 9 inches (1.75 m) tall and weighed 167 pounds (76 kg). He played 79 games in Major League Baseball (MLB) for the Chicago White Sox and Boston Red Sox in 1930, 1932 and 1933. His 76 big-league hits included 14 doubles and five triples. Mulleavy's minor league playing career lasted 20 seasons (1927–46), the last six as a playing manager.

Coach and managerEdit

He joined the Brooklyn Dodgers' organization in 1946 and became a longtime member of the Dodger system in both Brooklyn and Los Angeles. Mulleavy managed the Triple-A Montreal Royals for the full seasons of 1955–56 and through the mid-season of 1957. On June 14, he was reassigned to the Major League coaching staff of the Brooklyn Dodgers, and he remained as an aide to Walter Alston after the franchise moved West (1958–60; 1962–64). He served on two world champions for Los Angeles (1959; 1963). Mulleavy was a scout for the Dodgers from 1950 to 1954, in 1961, and from 1965 until his death in 1980.[1][2]
