Jack Crenshaw

Manager of the Templeton Knights baseball team


According to Bobbie Banning’s article, Jack Crenshaw loved baseball for as long as he could remember. He played for the Lincoln Links in the Nebraska State League from 1927 to 1936, prominently as right fielder. When his contract wasn’t renewed, he began playing for the Oklahoma City Indians. He played there for three years when a stray pitch struck him in the side of the head. He was unconscious for more than twelve hours. When he awoke, his motor skills had suffered somehow. Doctors agreed that there might have been some sort of brain damage caused by the blow. Crenshaw was let go at the end of the season.

Crenshaw was recently selected to be the new manager of the Templeton Knights.
