Player Biography

One of the Hall of Fame’s first inductees in 1936, Honus Wagner combined offensive and defensive excellence throughout a 21-year career. He hit better than .300 in 17 consecutive seasons, winning eight National League batting titles while hitting .329 lifetime. Wagner also led the league in stolen bases in five seasons. Primarily a shortstop, he excelled everywhere in the infield and outfield despite an awkward appearance – barrel-chested and bowlegged. John McGraw called him “the nearest thing to a perfect player no matter where his manager chose to play him.”

Still an American icon decades after his death, George Herman “Babe” Ruth emerged from humble beginnings to become the game’s greatest slugger and gate attraction. Ruth hit home runs at a prodigious rate – his single-season output often exceeded those of entire major league teams. He retired with 714 home runs, at a time when only two other players had reached 300. Reggie Jackson once deflected a comparison to “The Sultan of Swat,” saying, “There will never be another Babe Ruth. He was the greatest home run hitter who ever lived.”
