Honus Wagner
Original name: John Peter Wagner
Birth: Feb. 24, 1874
Chartiers
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Dec. 6, 1955
Carnegie
Pennsylvania, USA

Hall of Fame Major League Baseball Player. Nicknamed "Hans" and "The Flying Dutchman," he began his Major League career on July 19, 1897 with the soon to be defunct Louisville Colonels. In 1900 he joined the Pittsburgh Pirates and helped lead them to National League [NL] titles from 1901 to 1903 and to a World Series victory over the Detroit Tigers in 1909. He lead the NL in many hitting categories throughout his 21-year, and his league record of eight batting titles was only recently tied by Tony Gywnn in 1997. So outstanding were his abilities at the plate and in the field, primarily at short stop, that he was one of the first five inductees into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1936. Though he retired as a player in 1917, he is still recognized as one of the premier players of all time. (bio by: Lone Star Time Traveler)
