Biographical Information[edit]

Emil Fuchs graduated from New York University Law School, and became a magistrate for New York City from 1915 to 1918. He was an attorney for the New York Giants for a time, and became friends with John McGraw. He was owner of the Boston Braves from 1923 to 1935, paying $550,000 for the team, while being $300,000 in debt when he sold. He managed the club in 1929 as well. Fuchs brought Babe Ruth back to Boston in 1935, the last season for both of them.

While a student, he had played briefly in the New Jersey State League, a short-lived minor league in 1897, so he was not a complete baseball novice.

After selling the team, Fuchs resumed his law practice in Brookline, MA and paid off all his debts.
