Biographical Information[edit]

Ike Rockenfield played at least 11 years in the minors, coming to the majors to be the regular second baseman for the St. Louis Browns in 1905 and to continue as a player for the same team in 1906.

Rockenfield moved around a whole lot during his minor league career, usually playing for two or more teams each year. His best year with the bat was 1904 with Spokane, when he hit .361 in 124 games.

Sources say his minor league career lasted from 1901-1912 but since he was already 24 in 1901, it's possible he was in the minors before that as well.

After baseball he was a cigar salesman.

''Rockenfield can get Padden's job provided he shows the goods down South (in spring training)." - comments in Sporting Life, March 25, 1905, by the President of the St. Louis Browns, indicating that 34-year-old Dick Padden's career might be close to over

''Second baseman Rockenfield, of the Browns, requests us to state that 'if any club has any idea of making a deal for him it would do well to first communicate with him at Seattle, as he may not report.' " - a note in Sporting Life, February 17, 1906
