Excerpt: As player As manager Joseph Lowell "Joe" Gordon (February 18, 1915 April 14, 1978), nicknamed "Flash" in reference to the comic-book character Flash Gordon, was an American second baseman and manager in Major League Baseball who played for the New York Yankees and Cleveland Indians from 1938 to 1950.
