Profile Biography

Johnny came to the AAGPBL and Grand Rapids in 1946. Set on becoming a lawyer, he entered the University of Southern California and then was forced to sneak out to play baseball on the sly. Like many other youngsters the baseball bug bit hard, and Rawlings elected to postpone the law career for a whirl at professional baseball. It was a decision he has never regretted.   He managed three different teams in the league, including the 1947 Playoff Champion and 1948 League Champion Grand Rapids Chicks. He also acted as the AA league scout in the off season.  John played second base on the World Series winning teams with the New York Giants in 1921 abd 1922. He also played for World Series winner the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1925.  He played a total of 13 years (1914 to 1926) in the Major Leagues.
