  • Eddie Foster

    Third baseman Eddie Foster played in the big leagues for 13 seasons, hitting .264 with 195 stolen bases, 1,490 hits and a BB:K ratio of 1:7. He received MVP votes twice, finishing as high as seventh in the balloting, and Hall of Fame votes once, earning the support of 0.8% of the electorate. He was an "All-Star" once according to the Retrospective All-Star Game project.

    Foster, who was regarded as the best hit-and-run man of his day (per Baseball Library) led the league in at-bats four times, games at third base three times, games played once and 3B assists once.

    Statistically, he is similar to Jimmy Austin, Buck Herzog, Bill Wambsganss, Terry Turner, Bobby Byrne, Wid Conroy, Don Blasingame, Ivy Olson, Jimmy Johnston and Howie Shanks. He is ranked #763 on the Fan EloRater, ahead of Bill Lange, Lou Piniella and Rich Aurilia, but behind Joe Cunningham, Denis Menke and Tommie Agee.

    I went with "no." He certainly wasn't a bad player though.

        He seems like a good GWRBI guy.
