Biographical Information[edit]

Hal Rhyne broke in as a second baseman with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1926, and then converted to shortstop for the bulk of his career with the Boston Red Sox. In 1931, the year that teammate Earl Webb hit a record-breaking 67 doubles, Webb was sixth in the MVP voting while Rhyne was 14th.

Rhyne managed the Tacoma Tigers in the Western International League from 1938 to 1940. The team won the league championship in 1939.

As of 2018, Rhyne is one of only two major leaguers to have been born in Paso Robles, CA, a town roughly midway between Los Angeles, CA and San Francisco, CA, but his family moved to San Jose, CA around the time he started high school.
