From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia...

Arthur Leo Mahan (June 8, 1913 – December 7, 2010) was a professional baseball player, who played as a first baseman in the major leagues for the Philadelphia Phillies during the 1940 season. Born in Somerville, Massachusetts, he batted and threw left-handed.[1]

Mahan played in the Boston Red Sox organization from 1936 until he was sold to the Phillies in April 1940.[2] He played one season for the Phillies, and posted a .244 batting average (133-for-544) with two home runs and 39 RBI in 146 games played, including 55 runs, 24 doubles and five triples.[1] He hit a double off the wall his first time at bat and led the Phillies in stolen bases. During World War II, Mahan served as a training officer in the United States Navy, working in training cadets.[3] After the season, Mahan was sold back to his previous minor league team, the Little Rock Travelers of the Southern Association.[2] He made one last minor league appearance, in 1946 for the Providence Chiefs of the class-B New England League.[2]

A 1936 graduate of Villanova University, Mahan later became their head baseball coach from 1950 until 1972, and Athletic Director until 1978.[4]

Mahan died on December 7, 2010 in Villanova, Pennsylvania at the age of 97.[4] Up to the time of his death, he had been recognized as the fourth-oldest living major league baseball player.
