Player Biography
Signed in 1906 at age 18, Eddie Collins played 25 seasons in the major leagues – a 20th century record for position players. In 10 seasons, he batted better than .340, helping earn membership in the exclusive 3,000-hit club. The fiery second baseman starred in the famous $100,000 infield with the Philadelphia Athletics and also for the Chicago White Sox. The “choke-grip” batting style Collins used proved fruitful. An aggressive and confident second baseman, he was also an outstanding baserunner.
