ames Robert "Loafer" McAleer (July 10, 1864 April 29, 1931) was an American center fielder, manager, and stockholder in Major League Baseball who assisted in establishing the American League.[1] He spent most of his 13-season playing career with the Cleveland Spiders,[2] and went on to manage the Cleveland Blues, St. Louis Browns, and Washington Senators. Shortly before his retirement, he became a major shareholder in the Boston Red Sox.[3]

His career ended abruptly. During his brief tenure as co-owner of the Red Sox, McAleer quarreled with longtime friend and colleague Ban Johnson, president of the American League.[4] In the wake of this disagreement, he sold off his shares in the Red Sox and broke off his relationship with Major League Baseball.[5]

McAleer's rift with Johnson, along with his sudden retirement, damaged his professional reputation, and he received little recognition for his contributions to baseball.[5] Today, he is most often remembered for initiating the customary request that the President of the United States throw out the first ball of the season.[2]
