    Infielder Milt Stock played in the big leagues for 14 seasons, from 1913 to 1926. He hit .289 with 1,806 hits, 155 stolen bases, 839 runs scored and more walks than strikeouts. According to the Retrospective All-Star Game project, he was an "All Star" three times.

    He eclipsed the 20 stolen base mark three times and the 200 hit mark twice, including in the second-to-last year of his career. From 1919 to 1922, he hit .310 while averaging 178 hits and 80 runs scored a season.

    In 1920, he led the league in games played, hits, singles and 3B assists. In 1921, he paced the loop in sacrifice hits and in 1925 he led the circuit in singles again. All time, he is 49th in sacrifice hits.

    Statistically, he is similar to Heinie Groh, Pete Runnels, Harry Steinfeldt, Ossie Bluege, Billy Goodman, Danny Murphy, Larry Gardner, Willie Kamm, Billy Shindle and Bill Hallman. Through age 22, he was most similar to Hall of Famer George Kell. Through age 23, it was Ed Delahanty and through age 25 it was Red Schoendienst.

    He is ranked #794 on the Fan EloRater, ahead of Bug Holliday, Bill North and Gee Walker, but behind Stan Spence, Ossie Bluege and Shin-Soo Choo.

    He retired at the tender age of 32. IF he had played a few more years at a reasonable level maybe he'd have a had a shot.

          He seems like he was a decent regular who was pretty good (no great mind you, but above average, OPS+ 100-125 range) for a few years around 1920. But then he dropped off had the bounce back good penultimate year and was thru.
