Major League Baseball Player. Played Major League baseball as an outfielder for 8 seasons (1908 to 1915). Broke in with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1908, but played only 20 games that season before being traded to the Boston Braves. The next year with the Braves he played in all 152 games in the season for the only time in his career. He was then sent to the New York Giants in 1910, playing for them for the next three years, and appearing with them in the 1911 and 1912 World Series (the Giants lost both of them, first to the Philadelphia A's, then to the Boston Red Sox). Acquired by the Cincinnati Reds in 1913, he appeared in 30 games for them before being dealt to the Philadelphia Phillies in mid-season. He became the Phils starting outfielder, batting 316 in 1913. In 1914 (his best year) he batted .325, finishing second to Brooklyn's Jake Daubert's .329 average. In 1915 he helped the Phils to the World Series, where they lost to the Red Sox 4 games to 1. He appeared in only two games of the series, and his playing days were over after the Red Sox's win. During his career he gained a reputation for being very sensitive to fan criticism (called "having rabbit-ears"), and played markedly better on the road than at home. His career totals were 876 Games Played, 763 Hits, 45 Home Runs and a .276 Batting Average. (bio by: Russ Dodge)
