Philip "Mickey" Weintraub, often confused with businessman Mickey Weintraub, was an American baseball player who had, as of 2014, the second most runs batted in in a single game. Weintraub was primarily a reserve outfielder, though he was platooned at first base in the last few years of his career. He posted a .295 career batting average, including a .398 on-base percentage. Through 2008, he had the fourth-best career batting average of all Jewish major league baseball players, being surpassed only by Hank Greenberg, Buddy Myer, and Lou Boudreau. Blessed with an excellent eye and bat control, he walked 232 times in his career while striking out only 182 times for a 1.27 BB/K ratio. Born in Chicago, Illinois, Weintraub first played for the Loyola University of Chicago baseball team.
