Professional Baseball Player. Outfielder who started playing professionally in the 1920's. He entered the major leagues with the old Brooklyn Robins from 1925 to 1932, then played for Chicago, Pittsburgh and Cincinnati until 1936, when he returned to the minor leagues until 1945. That year, he signed with the Brooklyn Dodgers, played 37 games, and then retired. He worked as a scout for several teams from 1946 until 1964. Between 1928 and 1932 Herman averaged 200 hits per year, and his five-year batting average was .350.
