William Frederick Jurges (May 9, 1908 – March 3, 1997) was an American shortstop, manager, coach and scout in Major League Baseball. He was born in Bronx, New York. During the 1930s, he was central to three (1932, 1935 and 1938) National League champion Chicago Cubs teams. In July 1932, Jurges recovered from gunshot wounds — suffered when a distraught former girlfriend tried to kill him — to help lead the Cubs to the NL flag.
