Player Biography
A sharp batting eye and extraordinary fielding ability at first base led Ty Cobb to call George Sisler “the nearest thing to a perfect ballplayer.” The owner of an engineering degree, Sisler was one of baseball’s most intelligent and graceful players, starring predominantly for the St. Louis Browns. He won two batting titles, hitting better than .400 both times, and amassed 257 hits in 1920 – a record that stood for 84 years. Sisler had a 41-game hitting streak in 1922 and hit .300 or better 13 times, compiling a .340 lifetime average.
