Dode Paskert spent 15 years in the big leagues, hitting .268 with 1,613 hits, 293 stolen bases and 224 sacrifice hits. He stole at least 25 bases four times, hit at least 10 triples twice and scored at least 100 runs once. In 1937, he received a single vote for the Hall of Fame.

Paskert led league centerfielders in fielding percentage twice and he paced all league outfielders in fielding percentage once. He finished in the top ten in walks and runs scored six times each. He only led the league in one offensive category--strikeouts in 1918, with 49.

Statistically, he is similar to Enos Cabell, Stan Javier, Jim Piersall, Dave Martinez, Cesar Tovar, Dave Philley, Bill Bruton, Bill Virdon, Shano Collins and Harry Steinfeldt. Harry Steinfeldt, though not a Hall of Famer, is the unfortunate fourth member of the Tinkers-to-Evers-to-Chance infield that no one ever mentions. He's kind of like Salt-n-Pepa's Spinderella. Sorry for going off on a tangent.

In the Baseball Fever Retrospective All-Star Game project, Paskert was an "All-Star" three times.

Anyway, what do you think about Dode Paskert? Should he be in the Hall of Fame? Did he have Hall of Fame potential?
